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 the 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 notices of these additional blockings have been published in the Federal Register.

Additional Designations. On November 18, 2002, the Office of Foreign Assets Control, acting pursuant to authorities set forth in the Order, designated three additional entities whose property and interests in property are blocked. The names of these additional entities are set forth in the list below. Persons, and their known aliases, will be added to appendix A to 31 CFR chapter V, through a separate Federal Register notice, as “specially designated global terrorists” identified by the initials “[SDGT]”. Appendix A lists the names of persons with respect to whom transactions are subject to the various economic sanctions programs administered by the Office of Foreign Assets Control.

The designation by the Office of Foreign Assets Control pursuant to Executive Order 13224 of these additional entities listed below is effective on November 18, 2002. All property and interests in property of any designated person, 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of United States persons, including their overseas branches, are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in, and all transactions or dealings by U.S. persons or within the United States in property or interests in property of any designated person are prohibited, unless licensed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control or exempted by statute.
