Background

On August 30, 2010, the President signed Executive Order 13551 (the “Order”) pursuant to, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), section 5 of the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, as amended (22 U.S.C. 287c), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), and section 301 of Title 3, United States Code. In the Order, the President found that the continued actions and policies of the Government of North Korea, manifested most recently by its unprovoked attack that resulted in the sinking of the Republic of Korea Navy Ship Cheonan and the deaths of 46 sailors in March 2010, destabilize the Korean peninsula and imperil U.S. Armed Forces, allies, and trading partners in the region, and thereby constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. The President identified in the Annex to the Order one individual and three entities as subject to the economic sanctions in the Order.

Section 1 of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all property and interests in property that are in, or thereafter come within, the United States, or within the possession or control of United States persons, of the persons listed in the Annex, as well as those persons determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to meet any of the criteria set forth in subparagraphs (a)(i)-(a)(ii)(G) of Section 1.Start Printed Page 71795

On November 18, 2010, 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 of the Order, the entities listed below, whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to E.O. 13551.
