This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
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 have concluded that there is a sufficient factual basis to find that the Salafist Group for Call and Combat, has changed its name to al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb, a.k.a. AQIM, a.k.a. Tanzim al-Qa'ida fi Bilad al-Maghrib al-Islamiya, and that the relevant circumstances described in Section 219(a)(1) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (the “INA”) (8 U.S.C. 1189(a)(1)), and in Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224, as amended (“E.O. 13224”), still exist with respect to that organization.
Therefore, I hereby further amend the designation of that organization as a foreign terrorist organization, pursuant to Section 219(b) of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1189(b)), and further amend the 2001 designation of that organization pursuant to Section 1(b) of E.O. 13224, to include the following new names:
al-Qa'ida in the Islamic Maghreb
a.k.a Tanzim al-Qa'ida fi Bilad al-Maghrib al-Islamiya
Consistent with the determination in section 10 of Executive Order 13224 that “prior notice to persons determined to be subject to the Order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States would render ineffectual the blocking and other measures authorized in the Order because of the ability to transfer funds instantaneously”, I determine that no prior notice needs to be provided to any person subject to this determination who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, because to do so would render ineffectual the measures authorized in the Order.Start Signature
Dated: February 4, 2008.
Secretary of State, Department of State.
