Lloyds blocks charity to Palestine


Interpal (a charity dedicated to providing humanitarian aid to 
Palestinians) has released a copy of the letter sent by Lloyds TSB to 
IBB bank to serve them a formal notice to cease all dealings of 
Interpal bank accounts at IBB.

“On the November 12, Interpal received notification from their bank, 
the Islamic Bank of Britain (IBB), that Lloyds TSB (their clearing 
bank) has served notice on IBB to cease all dealings with Interpal. 
Clearing banks are responsible for the processing of all financial 
transactions and Lloyds TSB is one of the 4 clearing banks in the UK 
which all high street banks must work through. The notice comes into 
effect on 8 December 2008 (date subsequently revised to 30 January 
2009) and has the potential to force Interpal to cease operations 
early next month.

After this time “all transactions into or out of Interpal accounts 
will be blocked and IBB will be at further risk of all its customer 
payments being suspended”. To date, despite pressures from Lloyds, 
IBB has offered Interpal its full support but it remains threatened 
by Lloyds’ demands.”

Please Act now. Contact Lloyds TSB and no. 10 to protest the bank’s 
unacceptable bullying to charity organisations that help the caged 
Palestinians in Gaza who are being systemically and intentionally 
starved to death.

  1. I AM VERY SATISFIED WITH LLOYDS RESPONSE AND WILL DEFINITELY APPROVE THEIR DECISION TO CUT ALL TIES WITH A BANK THAT DEALS WITH TERRORISTS . I WILL INCREASE MY DEPOSIT WITH THIS BANK BOTH PERSONALLY AND THROUGH MY OTHER COMPANIES .

  2. and your proof that the bank deals with ‘terrorists’ is…?

  3. Gilberto milani… What an idiot.

  4. I just like the style you took with this article. It’s not typical that you simply discover something so to the point and enlightening.
