Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons
On June 17, 1999, the U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of
Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) updated its listing of Specially Designated Nationals and
Blocked Persons to include new entries for the regime in Belgrade under the sanctions
program involving Kosovo. On June 25, 1999, OFAC again updated its listing of Specially
Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons to include additional names under its Kosovo
program and to add more names to the list of Specially Designated Terrorists.
Attached is a supplemental list from OFAC containing all changes to the list of
Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons since January 1, 1999. OFAC has asked
that we distribute the update to all FDIC-regulated 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 OFAC's Compliance Programs Division at
1-800-540-6322. For your reference, all FDIC Financial Institution Letters published since
January of 1995 may be found on the FDIC's Web site at www.fdic.gov
under the "Banking News" category.
