FOREIGN ASSETS CONTROL ACT

FIL-14-2002
February 27, 2002

TO: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER
SUBJECT: Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons

On January 9, 2002, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended its listing of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons by adding four new names of specially designated global terrorists. Their assets must be blocked immediately.

Attached is a copy of the OFAC bulletin announcing the additions and information from OFAC containing all changes to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons since January 1, 2002. For your convenience, a copy of the "Master List" of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons containing entries through December 31, 2001, is also attached. Please retain the "Master List" for future reference. OFAC has asked that we distribute the information to all FDIC-supervised institutions so records can be checked for accounts that are required to be blocked. OFAC information also may be found on the Internet at www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/.

Please distribute this information to the appropriate personnel in your institution. For further information about Executive Orders, the list of blocked accounts or the procedures to block accounts, please call OFAC's Compliance Programs Division at 1-800-540-6322.

For your reference, all FDIC Financial Institution Letters published since January of 1995 may be found on the FDIC's Web site at www.fdic.gov under "Newsroom, Events & FOIA."
