Financial Institution Letter
FOREIGN ASSETS CONTROL ACT
TO: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER 
SUBJECT: Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons 

On December 20, 2001, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended its listing of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons by adding five new names of specially designated global terrorists. Their assets must be blocked immediately. 

Attached is a copy of the OFAC bulletin announcing the additions. Also attached is information from OFAC containing all changes to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons since January 1, 2001. 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 https://home.treasury.gov/policy-issues/office-of-foreign-assets-control-sanctions-programs-and-information

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."
