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 by adding names to its list of Specially Designated Global Terrorists and amending several other names.
On June 6, 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 several names to OFAC's listing of Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs). OFAC also amended the AL-AQSA APANMAL STIFTELSE listings to AL-AQSA SPANMAL STIFTELSE, resulting in a change to all related entries. The listings of the new SDGTs and the revised listings of AL-AQSA APANMAL STIFTELSE are attached.
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/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)
