CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (also of interest to BSA Compliance Officer)
Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons
Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control has amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
On February 12, 2003, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) amended its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDNs) by adding OBURSATILES S.A. (a.k.a. OPERACIONES BURSATILES S.A. COMISIONISTA DE BOLSA). Although this entity is not on the list of Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers (SDNTs), its name has been integrated into OFAC's SDN list to indicate that its property and interests in property are currently blocked. See the attachment for additional details.
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.
Distribution: FDIC-Supervised Banks (Commercial and Savings)
