Background

On November 22, 2005, the President issued Executive Order 13391 (the “Order”) with respect to Zimbabwe pursuant to, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-06). In the Order, the President took additional steps with respect to the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13288 of March 7, 2003, in order to address the continued political repression and the undermining of democratic processes and institutions in Zimbabwe. The new Order, which replaced and superseded Executive Order 13288, expanded the list of sanctions targets to include immediate family members of any individual designated pursuant to the Zimbabwe sanctions, as well as those persons providing assistance to any sanctions target. The President identified 128 individuals and 33 entities as subject to the economic sanctions in the Annex to the Order.

Section 1 of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all property, and interests in property, that are in, or hereafter come within, the United States or the possession or control of United States persons for persons listed in the Annex and those persons determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, after consultation with the Secretary of State, to satisfy any of the criteria set forth in subparagraphs (a)(ii)(A) through (a)(ii)(D) of section 1. On January 30, 2008, the Director of OFAC exercised the Secretary of the Treasury's authority to designate, pursuant to one or more of the criteria set forth in section 1, subparagraphs (a)(ii)(A) through (a)(ii)(D) of the Order, the following two individuals and two entities, whose names have been added to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and whose property and interests in property are blocked, pursuant to the Order:
