Based upon a review of the Administrative Record assembled in this matter and in consultation with the Attorney General and the Secretary of the Treasury, I conclude that there is a sufficient factual basis to find that the relevant circumstances described in section 219 of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (hereinafter “INA”), exist with respect to Lashkar i Jhangvi. Therefore, I intend to designate that organization as a foreign terrorist organization pursuant to section 219(a) of the INA.
This designation shall be published in the Federal Register.Start Signature
Dated: January 21, 2003.
