Financial Institution Letters
Foreign Assets Control Act
On March 22, 2004, the Department of the Treasuryís Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) modified the aliases of the ANSAR AL-ISLAM listings and has designated this group a foreign terrorist organization (FTO) as well as being a Specially Designated Global Terrorist (SDGT), resulting in changes to the list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDNs). The modifications and new additions to the SDN list are attached.
OFAC has asked that we distribute this 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. For further information about Executive Orders, the list of blocked accounts or the procedures to block accounts, please call OFACís Compliance Programs Division at 1-800-540-6322.
For your reference, FDIC Financial Institution Letters may be accessed from the FDICís Web site at www.fdic.gov/news/news/financial/2004/index.html.
