OFAC SETTLEMENT WITH SOJITZ (HONG KONG) LIMITED FOR APPARENT BREACH OF IRAN SANCTIONS

On 11 January, OFAC announced the settlement of $5,228,298 re the potential civil liability for apparent violations of the Iranian Transactions and Sanctions Regulations.  Sojitz (Hong Kong) made US dollar payments through US financial institutions for Iranian-origin high density polyethylene resin (HDPE) from its bank in Hong Kong to the HDPE supplier’s banks in Thailand.

Any modest contributions for my time and ongoing expenses are welcomed!  I have a page where you can do so, and where one-off contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymea3coffee.com/KoIvM842y
