The BNP's pretend trade union has suffered another financial problem. A notice posted on 25 June on Solidarity's website stated that PayPal had frozen its account, which is used to receive membership subscriptions and donations online.
"This is due to the fact that the level of payments have triggered an automatic process designed to prevent money-laundering," the notice said. "We are required to submit photographic ID of officials, bank statements and so on. We are in the process of doing this."
This comes a month after the Trade Union Certification Office opened an investigation into Solidarity's financial affairs. For more information, read the July 2008 issue of Searchlight.
