The Anti-Money Laundering Office has put three Thai nationals on the terrorist blacklist, Amlo secretary-general Pol Col Seehanart Prayoonrat said on Thursday.
Pol Col Seehanart said Amlo's committee on financial transactions on April 18 asked the Civil Court to put the three Thai nationals on the terrorist blacklist.
The Civil Court ordered their names be put on the terrorist blacklist on May 8, under section 4 of the law on the prevention and suppression of financial support for terrorism, the Amlo secretary-general said.
The three are Amran Ming, Ahama Kaje and Abdulloh Maming. They were among a group of separatist insurgents that attacked the Phra Ong Dam operational base of Infantry Company 15121 in Narathiwat's Rangae district on Jan 19, 2011.
Capt Krit Kampiyarn, Sgt Abdulloh Dayi, Sgt Tewarat Tewa, Pvt Pravit Chuklin and many other soldiers were wounded in the attack.
Pol Col Seehanart said the names of the three terrorists have been sent to various financial institutions.
A financial institution found to allow the three to make financial transactions is now liable to a fine of one million baht and an additional daily fine of 10,000 baht. The company manager of any such institution is also liable to criminal action.
People who give listed terrorists property or financial support are liable to five to ten years imprisonment for supporting terrorism, Pol Col Seehanart added.
The move is aimed at convincing the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) that Thailand is cracking down on money laundering and terrorist financing activities.
The FATF is considering removing Thailand from its "grey list".
