Background

On June 26, 2001, the President, invoking the authority of, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706) (“IEEPA”), issued Executive Order 13219 (66 Fed.Reg. 34777, June 29, 2001) (“E.O. 13219”). In E.O. 13219, the President declared a national emergency with respect to the actions of persons engaged in, or assisting, sponsoring, or supporting: (i) Extremist violence in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, southern Serbia, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, and elsewhere in the Western Balkans region, or (ii) acts obstructing implementation of the Dayton Accords in Bosnia or United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 in Kosovo.

On May 28, 2003, the President issued Executive Order 13304 (68 FR 32315, May 29, 2003) (“E.O. 13304”) terminating the national emergencies declared in Executive Order 12808 of May 20, 1992, and Executive Order 13088 of June 9, 1998, with respect to the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, revoking those and related executive orders, and taking additional steps with regard to the national emergency declared in E.O. 13219. Section 1 of E.O. 13219, as amended by E.O. 13304, blocks, with certain exceptions, all property and interests in property that are in the United States, or that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of United States persons, of: (i) Persons listed in the Annex to E.O. 13304 and (ii) persons designated by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, because they are determined: (A) To be under open indictment by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, unless circumstances warrant otherwise, or (B) to have committed, or to pose a significant risk of committing, acts of violence that have the purpose or effect of threatening the peace in or diminishing the stability or security of any area or state in the Western Balkans region, undermining the authority, efforts, or objectives of international organizations or entities present in the region, or endangering the safety of persons participating in or providing support to the activities of those international organizations or entities; or (C) to have actively obstructed, or pose a significant risk of actively obstructing, the Ohrid Framework Agreement of 2001 relating to Macedonia, United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 relating to Kosovo, or the Dayton Accords or the Conclusions of the Peace Implementation Conference held in London on December 8-9, 1995, including the decisions or conclusions of the High Representative, the Peace Implementation Council or its Steering Board, relating to Bosnia and Herzegovina; or (D) to have materially assisted in, sponsored, or provided financial, material, or technological support for, or goods or services in support of, such acts of violence or obstructionism or any person listed in or designated pursuant to this order; or (E) to be owned or controlled by, or acting or purporting to act directly or indirectly for or on behalf of, any of the foregoing persons.

On June 22, 2010, the Director of OFAC removed from the SDN List the individual listed below, whose property and interests in property were blocked pursuant to E.O. 13219, as amended by E.O. 13304: HALILOVIC, Sefer; DOB 6 Jan 1952; POB Prijepolje, Serbia and Montenegro; ICTY indictee (individual) [BALKANS].
