On 22 December, OFAC announced that it had designated Ismatullah Khalozai, an individual who has acted as a financial facilitator for the Islamic State’s Khorasan Province (ISIL-Khorasan), active in Afghanistan and commonly referred to as “ISIS-K”. The designation, in coordination with the Department of State, also sees Sanaullah Ghafari, Sultan Aziz Azam, and Maulawi Rajab designated as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGT) for their roles as leaders of ISIS-K.
At the same time, OFAC has made a number of deletions from its SDN List, and amended a number of others. A news release from the US Treasury refers those seeking information on the process for seeking removal from any OFAC list, including the Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List, to FAQ 897.
