Incident: Bank Account Freeze, Sri Lanka

It appears the Sri Lankan government has frozen the bank accounts of the local NGO, Tamil Rehabilitation Organisation (TRO). The government believes organization monies are being used to support terrorism. TRO denies the allegations. This is an interesting security tactic on the government's part. Especially considering some of the funds frozen were project-specific from partnerships with the UN and large INGOs such as Save the Children and Action Aid.
