Background

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 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 (the “Regulations”), the following 27 individuals and 3 entities are added to appendix A as persons 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 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 the Order (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.

The Office of Foreign Assets Control also is removing from appendix A the entry for one individual because it has been determined that the individual no longer meets the criteria for designation as a Specially Designated National of Cuba under the Cuban Assets Control Regulations, 31 CFR part 515. All real and personal property of this individual, including all accounts in which the individual has any interest, which had been blocked solely due to the individual's designation as a Specially Designated National of Cuba, are unblocked; and all lawful transactions involving U.S. persons and this individual 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.

Because the Regulations involve 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.
