Background

On August 6, 2013, President Barack Obama issued Executive Order 13651 (“E.O. 13651”). In Section 8 of E.O. 13651, the President determined and certified, pursuant to section 5(i) of the Tom Lantos Block Burmese JADE (Junta's Anti-Democratic Efforts) Act of 2008 (the “JADE Act”), that it is in the national interest of the United States to waive, and thereby waived, the sanctions described in section 5(b) of the JADE Act. As a result, as of August 7, the effective date of E.O. 13651, the financial and blocking provisions of section 5(b) of the JADE Act do not apply. Except as authorized or exempt, transactions with persons included on the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (“SDN List”) continue to be prohibited pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (“IEEPA”). Accordingly, while OFAC is updating the SDN List to remove the [JADE Act] tag that had publicly identified the following individuals and entities as subject to the financial and blocking provisions of Section 5(b) of the JADE Act, transactions and dealings with these individuals and entities continue to be prohibited pursuant to IEEPA:
