The Enforcement Directorate (ED) Thursday conducted searches at two locations here in connection with a foreign exchange contravention case against human rights watchdog Amnesty International India, officials said.

Amnesty International is a London-based non-governmental organization focused on human rights. The organization claims to have more than seven million members and supporters around the world.

Amnesty International has a presence in over 150 countries around the world. Their global teams bring torturers to justice, change oppressive laws and free people jailed just for voicing their opinion.

Around the world they stand with people and communities who come under attack, encourage governments and others to respect human rights and raise awareness of the international standards that protect us all.

ED said the searches are being conducted under the Foreign Exchange Management Act (FEMA) and the central probe agency is looking for documents.

The ED, they said, is looking at a possible and alleged violation of the FEMA linked to an earlier Union home ministry’s probe into the NGO’s accounts related to Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA) funds.

The agency, sometimes back, has frozen over a dozen bank accounts of environmental NGO Greenpeace and its linked entity after it conducted searches at their premises in Bengaluru on charges of alleged forex violations.
