Inactive Financial Institution Letters


November 21, 2002

TO: CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (also of interest to Security Officer)
SUBJECT: Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons
Summary: Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.

On November 6, 2002, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons by adding names to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGT). Please see the attached list of newly designated SDGTs.

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. A complete list from OFAC, containing all changes to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons since January 1, 2002, 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.
