CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER (also of interest to BSA Compliance Officer)
Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons
Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control has added numerous names to its list of Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers.
On March 27, 2003, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added the attached names of various persons and entities to its list of Specially Designated Narcotics Traffickers. These names have been added to OFAC's list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
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.
