Inactive Financial Institution Letters 


February 28, 2000

SUBJECT: Specially Designated Nationals, Narcotics Traffickers and Blocked Persons

On February 16, 2000, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) updated its listing of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons to include new entries for Sudan. On February 22, 2000, OFAC updated its listing of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons to include the names of numerous new Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers and to make changes to some of the entries previously listed.

Attached is information from OFAC containing the latest master list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons and all changes since January 1, 2000. OFAC has asked that we distribute the update to all FDIC-regulated institutions so records can be checked for accounts that are required to be blocked. OFAC information also may be found on the Internet at .

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 under "News, Events & FOIA."
