Section 3 of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all property and interests in property of the following persons, that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of United States persons: persons who are determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, (1) to be or to have been directing or otherwise significantly contributing to the Government of Syria's provision of safe haven to or other support for any person whose property or interests in property are blocked under the United States law for terrorism-related reasons; (2) to be or to have been directing or otherwise significantly contributing to the Government of Syria's military or security presence in Lebanon; (3) to be or to have been directing or otherwise significantly contributing to the Government of Syria's pursuit of the development and production of chemical, biological, or nuclear weapons and medium- and long-range surface-to-surface missiles; (4) to be or to have been directing or otherwise significantly contributing to any steps taken by the Government of Syria to undermine the United States and international efforts with respect to the stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq; or (5) to be owned or controlled by, or acting or purporting to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, any person whose property or interests in property are blocked pursuant to the Order.

On Monday, November 5, 2007, the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, designated, pursuant to one or more of the criteria set forth in the Order, one individual whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to Executive Order 13338.
