OFAC BURMA/MYANMAR, DR CONGO, GLOBAL MAGNITSKY AND TERRORISM SANCTIONS CHANGES, PLUS COMMERCE DEPARTMENT RESTRICTIONS ON BURMA/MYANMAR

On 10 March, OFAC announced that 3 individuals (1 Tanzanian and 2 Burmese) and 7 entities (6 Burmese plus Islamic State in Mozambique) had been added to its SDN List.  Entries for 1 individual and 1 entity were also amended.  The Burma/Myanmar changes target family members profiting from connection to the Burmese coup leader.  OFAC has sanctioned the 2 adult children of the commander-in-chief of the Burmese military forces, Min Aung Hlaing, who is the leading actor in the overthrow of Burma’s democratically elected government, as well as 6 companies of his 2 adult children.  The US Commerce Department also announced new export controls on Burma and makes entity list additions in response to the military coup and escalating violence against peaceful protesters.
