U.S. Imposes Sanctions on Sudanese Government Officials and Companies

Today the U.S. imposed additional sanctions on Sudan. Specifically, the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) blocked the assets and added to the SDN List three Sudanese individuals, including two high-ranking government officials and a rebel leader, for their roles in the violence-plagued Darfur region of Sudan. In addition, OFAC added to SDN List the names of 30 Sudanese companies owned or controlled by the Government of Sudan, and one company that violated the arms embargo in Darfur.

Among the companies designated in today's action are GIAD Industrial City, which has supplied armored vehicles to the Sudanese government for military operations in Darfur; Sudatel, the national telecommunications company; and five firms in the petrochemical sector, including Advanced Petroleum Company, RAM Energy Company, Bashaier, Hi-Tech Petroleum Group, and Hi-Tech Chemicals.

As a result of OFAC's designations, any assets these individuals and entities may have that are within U.S. jurisdiction must be frozen, and U.S. persons are prohibited from transacting or doing business with them.

A complete list of the individuals and entities designated today is posted at the following link: www.treasury.gov/offices/enforcement/ofac/actions/20070529.shtml.
