AN international money transfer company has sued the government after its bank accounts were frozen and licences suspended over suspicions of funding terrorists.

Dahabshiil is the largest Africa-based international funds transfer business and has more than 24,000 outlets in more than 126 countries worldwide.

Dahabshiil wants the court to issue orders stopping the Central Bank of Kenya from continuing to freeze its accounts and suspending its money transfer remittance licence.

The case will be mentioned on May 29.
