The US State Department on Thursday added a left-wing Greek group, the Sect of Revolutionaries, to its list of terrorist organizations, saying it poses a threat to US national security. Washington said the group, known by the Greek acronym SE, now faces a raft of restrictions and financial sanctions.
“This action will help stem the flow of finances to SE by blocking all property subject to US jurisdiction in which SE has an interest and prohibiting all transactions by US persons with the organization,” the State Department said in a statement.
It said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton singled out the Sect of Revolutionaries “because the organization’s indiscriminate terrorist activities threaten the national security of the United States.”
“SE is a Greek terrorist organization that uses violence to try to provoke a revolution and overthrow the Greek government,” the statement said.
