Specially Designated Nationals, Narcotics
Traffickers and Blocked Persons
On May 26, 1999, 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 and Unita. Certain deletions and
modifications to the existing list also were made. On May 28, 1999, OFAC updated its
listing of specially designated nationals and blocked persons to include the names of the
five individuals indicted as war criminals by the United Nations International Criminal
Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia. On June 8, 1999, OFAC updated its listing of specially
designated narcotics traffickers and also updated data for entities previously listed.
Attached is information from OFAC containing all changes to the list of Specially
Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons since January 1, 1999. 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 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

January of 1995 may be found on the FDIC's Web site at www.fdic.gov
