The Bank of England has named 19 of the 24 air terror plot suspects.
It follows an instruction by Chancellor Gordon Brown to the Bank of England to freeze the assets of the 19 people arrested on Thursday in connection with an alleged plot to blow up passenger jets leaving UK airports for the US.

I know that banks usualy freeze terror suspects assets, and i know that the news says this was done on the recommendation of the government and MI5, but still, i always thought it was the police or other security services that revealed suspects name?
If it's normal procedure why wasn't it done last year with the botched train bombing suspects, I believe they were not immediately named by security services or bank of england.
The names in the Annex are in addition to those listed in previous Bank Notices containing directions under Article 4 of the Terrorism (United Nations Measures) Order 2001 (S.I. 2001/3365) and under Article 8 of the Al-Qa’ida and Taliban (United Nations Measures) Order 2002 (S.I. 2002/111, as amended).
