Rory Donaghy in middleeasteye.net, ‘A prominent London mosque on Friday launched a legal case to be removed from a terrorism risk database used by 49 of the world’s biggest 50 banks. Finsbury Park Mosque was among several British Muslim organisations who had their bank accounts closed down by HSBC in 2014. HSBC did not disclose the reason for the account closures but in July 2015 Middle East Eye journalist Peter Oborne uncovered that the terrorism risk database World Check, which is owned by Thomson Reuters, listed Finsbury Park Mosque as a terrorist organisation. After months of trying to have the mosque taken off the database, lawyers have now filed a case with the London High Court to sue for defamation and claim damages against Thomson Reuters.’ click here.
