OFAC ADDS 2 NAMES TO SDN SANCTIONS LIST

On 2 September, OFAC adds Fatou BENSOUDA (aka Fatou Bom BENSOUDA), a Gambian national, and Phakiso MOCHOCHOKO, a Lesotho national, to its SDN Lists.  They are listed pursuant to the Executive Order blocking property of certain persons associated with the International Criminal Court, in response to the ICC assertions of jurisdiction over personnel of the US and certain of its allies, including the ICC Prosecutor’s investigation into actions allegedly committed by US military, intelligence, and other personnel in or relating to Afghanistan.  Bensouda is a chief prosecutor at the ICC.
