Background

On September 23, 2001, President Bush issued Executive Order 13224 (the “Order”) imposing economic sanctions on persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support certain acts of terrorism. In an annex to the Order, President Bush identified 12 individuals and 15 entities whose assets are blocked pursuant to the Order (66 FR 49079, September 25, 2001). Additional persons have been blocked pursuant to authorities set forth in the Order since that date and notice of such published in the Federal Register. One such additional person, Mr. Liban Hussein, was designated by the Secretary of the Treasury in consultation with the Secretary of State and the Attorney General, acting pursuant to authorities set forth in the Order, on November 7, 2001 (67 FR 12644, March 19, 2002). The Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control has determined that Mr. Hussein no longer continues to meet the standards for designation under E.O. 13224 and is appropriate for removal from the list of persons designated under Executive Order 13224.

The removal of Mr. Hussein's name from the list of those persons designated pursuant to Executive Order 13224 is effective as of July 15, 2002. All property and interests in property of Mr. Hussein, 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 United States persons, including their overseas branches, are now unblocked.

The following designation is removed from the list of persons designated pursuant to Executive Order 13224:

INDIVIDUAL (1):

HUSSEIN, Liban, 2019 Bank St., Ottawa, Ontario, Canada; 925 Washington St., Dorchester, Massachusetts, U.S.A.
