Background Back to Top

Appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V contains the names of blocked persons, specially designated nationals, specially designated terrorists, foreign terrorist organizations, and specially designated narcotics traffickers designated pursuant to the various economic sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”). Pursuant to section 804(b) of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act, 21 U.S.C. 1903(b), on June 1, 2000, President Clinton identified twelve individuals as significant foreign narcotics traffickers. In accordance with section 598.314 of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 598, those twelve individuals are added to appendix A as specially designated narcotics traffickers. The notes to the appendixes to 31 CFR chapter V are amended to add the term “[SDNTK]” to refer to those persons designated as specially designated narcotics traffickers under the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Sanctions Regulations.

As of June 1, 2000, all property and interests in property, including but not limited to all accounts, that are or come within the United States or that are or come within the possession or control of U.S. persons, including their overseas branches, that are owned or controlled by those twelve persons are blocked. All transactions or dealings by U.S. persons or within the United States in property or interests in property of those twelve persons are prohibited unless licensed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control or otherwise authorized.

In addition, the Office of Foreign Assets Control is adding to appendix A the names of three individuals and five entities who have been determined to play a significant role in international narcotics trafficking centered in Colombia, to materially assist in or provide financial support or technological support for, or goods or services in support of the narcotics trafficking activities of other specially designated narcotics traffickers, or to be owned or controlled by, or to act for or on behalf of, persons designated in or pursuant to Executive Order 12978 of October 21, 1995, “Blocking Assets and Prohibiting Transactions with Significant Narcotics Traffickers” (the “Order”), and section 536.312 of the Narcotics Trafficking Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 536 (collectively “Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers” or “SDNTs”). All real and personal property in which the SDNTs have any interest, including but not limited to all accounts, that are or come within the United States or that are or come within the possession or control of U.S. persons, including their overseas branches, are blocked. All transactions by U.S. persons or within the United States in property or interests in property of SDNTs are prohibited unless licensed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control or exempted by statute. Supplementary information is added to an existing SDNT entry for one individual, and that entry is revised in its entirety.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control also is removing from appendix A the entries for two individuals because it has been determined that they no longer meet the criteria for designation as SDNTs under the Order and the Narcotics Trafficking Sanctions Regulations. All real and personal property of these two individuals, including all accounts in which they have any interest, that had been blocked solely due to their designation as SDNTs, is unblocked; and all lawful transactions involving U.S. persons and these individuals previously barred as a result of their designation are permissible.

Designations of foreign persons blocked pursuant to the Order are effective upon the date of determination by the Director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control, acting under authority delegated by the Secretary of the Treasury. Public notice of blocking is effective upon the date of filing with the Federal Register, or upon prior actual notice.

Finally, in furtherance of section 303 of the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996, 18 U.S.C. 2339B (“AEDPA”), implemented in part by the Foreign Terrorist Organizations Sanctions Regulations, 31 CFR part 597 (the “FTO Regulations”), the Office of Foreign Assets Control is adding the name of one foreign terrorist organization to appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V. Section 303 of AEDPA, as implemented in section 597.201 of the FTO Regulations, requires financial institutions in possession or control of funds in which a foreign terrorist organization or its agent has an interest to block such funds except as authorized pursuant to the FTO Regulations, and to file reports in accordance with the FTO Regulations.

The foreign terrorist organization, The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan, was designated by the Secretary of State in a notice published in the Federal Register on September 25, 2000 (65 FR 57641), pursuant to section 302 of AEDPA, 8 U.S.C. 1189, which authorizes the Secretary of State, in consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury and the Attorney General, to designate organizations meeting stated requirements as FTOs, with prior notification to Congress of the intent to designate.

Because this rule involves a foreign affairs function, Executive Order 12866 and the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act (5 U.S.C. 553), requiring notice of proposed rulemaking, opportunity for public participation, and delay in effective date, are inapplicable. Because no notice of proposed rulemaking is required for this rule, the Regulatory Flexibility Act (5 U.S.C. 601-612) does not apply.
