Summary: The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control has added several entries to its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.

Highlights:
  • On February 7, 2006, President Bush issued a new Executive Order declaring a national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States posed by the conflict in Côte d'Ivoire. As a result of this action, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) added three entries to its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
  • The new entries are: (1) BLE GOUDE, Charles, 23 BP 3383, Abidjan 23, Cote d'Ivoire; DOB 1 Jan 1972; POB Guiberoua, Cote d'Ivoire; Passport PDAE088DH12 (Cote d'Ivoire); Head of "Young Patriots" (Congres Panafricain des Jeunes Patriotes, COJEP) (individual) [COTED]; (2) DJUE, Eugene Ngoran Kouadio; DOB 20 Dec 1969; alt. DOB 1 Jan 1966; POB Akakro, Cote d'Ivoire; Leader of Union for the Total Liberation of Cote d'Ivoire (Union pour la Liberation Totale de la Cote d'Ivoire, UPLTCI) (individual) [COTED]; and (3) FOFIE, Martin Kouakou; DOB 1 Jan 1968; "New Forces" (Forces Nouvelles) Zone Commander in Korhogo (individual) [COTED].
  • OFAC has also added additional entries to the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons list. The new entries 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 http://www.treas.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac.
  • Please distribute this information to the appropriate personnel in your institution.
