Monetary Support to Individuals in Conflict Zones – What You Need to Know
MLFA’s Criminal Defense Department Head, Charles Swift, speaks on legal insights to keep in mind when considering contributing to individuals in politically unstable regions.
Monetary transfers to individuals in politically unstable regions are not per se unlawful, however, they do post significant risk. Seek out a charity that has a current license from the US Treasury Department as a way to send aid to volatile regions. Before transferring funds to individuals, you should always seek the advice of an attorney. MLFA is available to answer your questions pro bono.
