Argentina: New law criminalizes financing of terrorism

On 13 June, the Argentinean Congress adopted a new bill to criminalize financing of terrorism. The bill was strongly criticised by NGOs for containing a very vague definition of the offence of “illicit terrorist association”. The Centro de Estudios Legales y Sociales (CELS), the ICJ Argentinean affiliate, submitted a memorandum to Congress expressing concern that the new offence is incompatible with the criminal law principle of legality.
