Background

The Kingpin Act became law on December 3, 1999. The Kingpin Act establishes a program targeting the activities of significant foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations on a worldwide basis. It provides a statutory framework for the President to impose sanctions against significant foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations on a worldwide basis, with the objective of denying their businesses and agents access to the U.S. financial system and the benefits of trade and transactions involving U.S. companies and individuals.

On October 13, 2010, the Director of OFAC blocked pending investigation five entities whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to section 806(a)(2) of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act.
