Background

On February 5, 2012, the President issued Executive Order 13599, “Blocking Property of the Government of Iran and Iranian Financial Institutions” (the “Order”). Section 1(a) of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all property and interests in property of the Government of Iran, including the Central Bank of Iran, that are in the United States, that hereafter come within the United States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of any United States person, including any foreign branch. Section 7(d) of the Order defines the term “Government of Iran” to mean the Government of Iran, any political subdivision, agency, or instrumentality thereof, including the Central Bank of Iran, and any person owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, the Government of Iran.

On March 14, 2013, the Director of OFAC identified the entity listed below as meeting the definition of the Government of Iran and blocked the property and interests in property of the entity pursuant to section 1(a) of the Order.

On April 29, 2014, the Acting Director of OFAC, in consultation with the State Department, determined that circumstances no longer warrant the blocking of the entity listed below pursuant to Executive Order 13599 and, accordingly, unblocked and removed this entity from the SDN List.
