Background

On February 25, 2011, the President issued Executive Order 13566, “Blocking Property and Prohibiting Certain Transactions Related to Libya” (the “Order”), pursuant to, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-06).

Section 2 of the Order blocks all property and interests in property that are in the United States, that come within the United States, or that are or come within the possession or control of any United States person, including any overseas branch, of the Government of Libya, its agencies, instrumentalities, and controlled entities, and the Central Bank of Libya.

On March 4, 2011, OFAC published General License No. 1A on its Web site, which authorized all transactions involving banks that are owned or controlled by the Government of Libya and organized under the laws of a country other than Libya, provided that the transactions do not otherwise involve the Government of Libya or any person whose property and interests in property are blocked. On June 21, 2011, OFAC revoked General License No. 1A and replaced it with General License No. 1B. The authorization in General License No. 1B is identical to the authorization that was contained in General License No. 1A, except that it specifically excludes Arab Turkish Bank, North Africa International Bank, and North Africa Commercial Bank from its scope.

Also on June 21, 2011, the Director of OFAC identified, pursuant to Section 2 of the Order, nine entities whose property and interests in property are blocked. The listing for these entities is as follows:
