“Treasury Designates Seven Individuals And One Entity Contributing To The Situation In Ukraine”

April 14, 2014

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control on April 11, 2014 released the following:

Sanctions Target Crimean Separatists, a former Ukrainian Official,
and a Crimea-based Gas Company

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) today designated Crimean separatist leaders Pyotr Zima, Aleksei Chaliy, Rustam Temirgaliev, Yuriy Zherebtsov, Mikhail Malyshev, and Valery Medvedev, former Ukrainian official Sergey Tsekov, and Crimea-based gas company Chernomorneftegaz pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13660. These individuals and this entity are being sanctioned for being responsible for or complicit in, or having engaged in, actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine, actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine, or misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine; or having asserted governmental authority over any part or region of Ukraine without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine.

“Crimea is occupied territory. We will continue to impose costs on those involved in ongoing violations of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen.

Crimean Separatists

Pyotr Zima was appointed as de facto head of the Security Service of Ukraine’s main directorate in Crimea by the presidium of the Crimean parliament in March 2014. Zima was subsequently dismissed from his duties by interim Ukrainian President Oleksandr Turchynov for taking an oath of loyalty to the new Crimean authorities, and the Prosecutor-General’s Office of Ukraine received permission from a Ukrainian district court to detain Zima for colluding with Sergei Aksenov and Vladimir Konstantinov to commit crimes under Article 109 Part 1 of the Ukrainian Criminal Code. Aksenov and Konstantinov were designated on March 17, 2014 pursuant to E.O. 13660. Zima is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13660 because he has asserted governmental authority over a part or region of Ukraine without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine.

Aleksei Chaliy is the de facto Chairman of the Coordinating Council for the establishment of the Sevastopol municipal administration, and signed the March 16, 2014 agreement between the Russian Federation and the “Republic of Crimea” to unite Crimea and the city of Sevastopol with Russia. Chaliy is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13660 because he has asserted governmental authority over any part or region of Ukraine without the authorization of the Government of Ukraine; and because he is responsible for or complicit in, or has engaged in, directly or indirectly, actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine.

As de facto Deputy Chairman of the Council of Ministers of Crimea, Rustam Temirgaliev ran the unauthorized March 16, 2014 referendum in Crimea.

As de facto counselor to the Speaker of the Crimean parliament, the Rada, Yuriy Zherebtsov was one of the main organizers of the unauthorized March 16 referendum in Crimea, which paved the way for Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. On March 9, 2014, Zherebtsov signed a letter on behalf of the authorities of “the Autonomous Republic of Crimea” requesting the commander of the military base in Yevpatoria, Crimea to disarm his troops and surrender the base to the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation.

Mikhail Malyshev is the de facto Chair of the Crimea Electoral Commission, which administered the unauthorized March 16, 2014 referendum in Crimea.

Valery Medvedev is the de facto Chair of the Sevastopol Electoral Commission, which administered the unauthorized March 16, 2014 referendum for the city of Sevastopol.

Temirgaliev, Zherebtsov, Malyshev, and Medvedev are being designated pursuant to E.O. 13660 because they are responsible for or complicit in, or have engaged in, directly or indirectly, actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine. Zherebtsov is also being designated because he is responsible for or complicit in, or has engaged in, directly or indirectly, actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in Ukraine.

Former Ukrainian Official

Sergey Tsekov was the Vice Speaker of Ukraine’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, and was responsible for facilitating the unauthorized referendum that paved the way for Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. Tsekov is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13660 because he is responsible for or complicit in, or has engaged in, directly or indirectly, actions or policies that threaten the peace, security, stability, sovereignty, or territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Crimean Entity

On March 18, 2014 the Crimean parliament passed a resolution to seize the Crimean assets of a subsidiary of a Ukrainian state-owned gas company which has drilling rigs off Crimea’s west coast and in the Sea of Azov. The assets were transferred to an entity with the same name, Chernomorneftegaz, and same address. The parliament’s resolution said the takeover would include ownership of the region’s “continental shelf and the exclusive (maritime) economic zone.” Chernomorneftegaz is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13660 because it is complicit in the misappropriation of state assets of Ukraine or of an economically significant entity in Ukraine.

As a result of Treasury’s action, any assets of the persons designated today that are within U.S. jurisdiction must be frozen. Additionally, transactions by U.S. persons or with the United States involving these individuals and entity are generally prohibited.

U.S. Department of the Treasury – OFAC Sanctions Alleged Sinaloa Cartel Lieutenant Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa

January 13, 2014

The Wall Street Journal on January 8, 2014 released the following:

“By SAMUEL RUBENFELD

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control placed Kingpin Act sanctions on a senior lieutenant of the Sinaloa Cartel.

Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, who is also known as Chino Antrax, controls Los Antrax, which provides security and protection for Ismael “Mayo” Zambada Garcia and his family, and is responsible for eliminating Mr. Zambada Garcia’s rivals, Treasury said.

Mr. Arechiga Gamboa also handles transport and logistics for Joaquin Guzman Loera, who leads the Sinaloa Cartel, Treasury said. In addition, he worked with a Sinaloa cartel lieutenant killed by Mexican authorities in December, Treasury said.

Mr. Arechiga Gamboa “represents the next generation of hyper violent drug traffickers,” said Adam Szubin, director of OFAC, in a statement.

Treasury said Mr. Arechiga Gamboa was charged Dec. 20 in a sealed indictment by a grand jury in the Southern District of California with two counts of narcotics trafficking violations. He was arrested 10 days later by Dutch authorities at an Amsterdam airport, and the indictment was unsealed Jan. 3, Treasury said. The U.S. is seeking his extradition.”

U.S. Department of the Treasury: “Treasury Targets “Los Cachiros” Drug Trafficking Organization in Honduras”

September 19, 2013

The U.S. Department of the Treasury on September 19, 2013 released the following:

“Action Sanctions Individuals and Businesses Linked to Los Cachiros

WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury today announced the designation of seven individuals and five businesses tied to the Honduran drug trafficking organization, Los Cachiros. The individuals designated include the leaders of Los Cachiros, brothers Javier Eriberto Rivera Maradiaga and Devis Leonel Rivera Maradiaga, who play a significant role in international narcotics trafficking. Treasury also designated the following associates, among which are family members of the brothers, for the role they play in supporting the international narcotics trafficking activities of the brothers and the organization: Santos Isidro Rivera Cardona (father), Esperanza Caridad Maradiaga Lopez (mother), Maira Lizeth Rivera Maradiaga (sister), Santos Isidro Rivera Maradiaga (brother), and Bismarck Antonio Lira Jiron (a Nicaraguan cell leader for Los Cachiros). In addition, the five designated businesses are being used by the group to further the organization’s drug trafficking activities and launder illicit proceeds.

“Los Cachiros is a violent drug trafficking organization in Honduras whose members plow illicit drug proceeds into businesses and properties in order to gain public legitimacy and launder their wealth,” said Treasury’s Director of the Office of Foreign Assets Control Adam J. Szubin. “Treasury will continue its work to disrupt the criminal activities of Los Cachiros members and expose them for what they are – drug traffickers and money launderers.”

Today’s action would not be possible without the support and cooperation of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the U.S. Department of State, and the Government of Honduras.

“Drug traffickers and money launderers are put on notice: DEA in coordination with our foreign partners will identify, investigate, indict, and seek extradition of international drug traffickers and money launderers. We will seize their assets and ensure they will face justice for distributing illegal drugs. The Los Cachiros organization will be held accountable for their federal drug trafficking crimes,” said DEA’s Acting Deputy Chief of Operations for the Office of Financial Operations Brian M. McKnight.

This action marks the U.S. Government’s second action against Los Cachiros in four months. In May 2013, the President identified Los Cachiros as a significant foreign narcotics trafficking group pursuant to the Kingpin Act. Today’s action generally prohibits U.S. persons from engaging in any transactions with these designees and freezes any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction.

Los Cachiros coordinates the movement of drugs to and from Honduras for Colombian and Mexican drug trafficking organizations, including the Sinaloa Cartel. Los Cachiros employs land, air, and sea conveyances in its movement of drugs, and its activities have been linked to seizures of cocaine in Central America. It is reported that Los Cachiros controls 90 percent of the clandestine airstrips in Honduras, and it uses these airstrips to facilitate the entry of drugs into Honduras and Guatemala.

In August 2012, Nicaraguan authorities charged Los Cachiros leader, Javier Eriberto Rivera Maradiaga, and Nicaraguan associate, Bismarck Antonio Lira Jiron, with conspiracy in the international transport of illicit drugs, money laundering, illicit financing of narcotics, and organized crime. Nicaraguan authorities arrested Lira Jiron that same month.

The Honduran businesses targeted today are directed, owned, or controlled by Javier Eriberto Rivera Maradiaga or Devis Leonel Rivera Maradiaga or other family members who act on behalf of the brothers and their organization. The identified family businesses include: Ganaderos Agricultores del Norte, S. de R.L. de C.V.(cattle and agriculture); Palma del Bajo Aguan, S.A. (African palm oil production); Minera Mi Esperanza, S.A. (mining manufacturing); Inmobiliaria Rivera Maradiaga, S.A. de C.V. (road construction); and Inversiones Turisticas Joya Grande, S.A. de C.V. (zoo and eco-tourist park).

Internationally, OFAC has designated more than 1,300 individuals and entities linked to 103 drug kingpins since June 2000. OFAC designations are part of an ongoing effort to apply financial measures against significant foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations worldwide. Penalties for violations of the Kingpin Act range from civil penalties of up to $1.075 million per violation to more severe criminal penalties. Criminal penalties for corporate officers may include up to 30 years in prison and fines up to $5 million. Criminal fines for corporations may reach $10 million. Other individuals face up to 10 years in prison and fines pursuant to Title 18 of the United States Code for criminal violations of the Kingpin Act.

U.S. Department of the Treasury: “Treasury Designated Individuals Linked to Indonesia-Based Terrorist Organizations”

September 19, 2013

The U.S. Department of the Treasury on September 18, 2013 released the following:

“WASHINGTON – Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury designated two individuals based in Indonesia for their links to the terrorist groups Jemaah Islamiya (JI) and Jemmah Anshorut Tauhid (JAT). Said Ahmad Sungkar has been involved in fundraising efforts for JAT and supporting JI operatives. Afif Abdul Majid is a senior JAT leader who has overseen the recruitment and training of terrorists in Indonesia. These designations are part of the Treasury Department’s ongoing efforts to target these organizations as well as disrupt their financial and logistical support networks.

“The threats posed by terrorist groups such as Jemaah Islamiya and Jemmah Anshorut Tauhid remain significant. We will continue to take action to protect the international financial system from illicit activity tied to these groups, making it ever more difficult for them to carry out their acts of violence,” said Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen.

The individuals sanctioned today were designated pursuant to E.O. 13224, which targets terrorists and their supporters. U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with the individuals designated today, and any assets of those designees subject to U.S. jurisdiction are frozen.

JI is a Southeast Asia-based terrorist network with links to al-Qaida. It has been designated by the UN and the United States since 2002 and is responsible for numerous acts of terrorism including the Bali bombing in 2002, in which over 200 people from 27 nations were killed.

JAT is also an Indonesia-based terrorist group with links to JI. In February 2012 the State Department designated JAT pursuant to Executive Order 13224 and added the group to its list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations, while the Department of the Treasury designated three JAT leaders: JAT’s acting Emir Mochammad Achwan, JAT spokesperson Son Hadi bin Muhadjir, and JAT leadership figure Abdul Rosyid Ridho Ba’asyir, who was involved in recruiting and fundraising activities.

JAT seeks to establish an Islamic caliphate in Indonesia, and has carried out numerous attacks on Indonesian Government personnel and civilians in order to achieve this goal. Abu Bakar Ba’asyir, the founder and leader of JAT, and a UN 1267 listed individual, was convicted and sentenced to prison in 2011 for his role in organizing a terrorist training camp in Aceh.

Said Ahmad Sungkar

Said Ahmad Sungkar (Sungkar) is being designated for providing financial, material, or technological support, or financial or other services, to JI and JAT. Sungkar has been involved in supporting Indonesia-based JI and JAT terrorist networks over a number of years. Most recently, Sungkar conducted fundraising and recruiting for JAT in 2013.

Sungkar previously had served as JI’s media chief. Also, on several occasions, Sungkar has extended logistics support to JI operatives seeking to evade capture and provided extremist operatives with fake documents.

In addition to providing support and services to JI and JAT Sungkar was linked to a terrorist training camp in 2010 in Aceh, Indonesia, that was under the leadership of senior JI operative Joko Pitono (a.k.a. Dulmatin) and gathered militants from various regional groups, including some with links to al-Qa’ida. The militants, using the name “al-Qa’ida in Aceh,” plotted to kill U.S. aid workers and Western tourists and attack churches and Western NGOs. Dulmatin was killed in an Indonesian police raid in March 2010.

Afif Abdul Majid

Afif Abdul Majid (Abdul Majid) is being designated for acting for or on behalf of JAT. Abdul Majid since 2008 has served as a JAT leader, overseeing JAT fighters. In 2012, Abdul Majid played a role in coordinating the activities of regional JAT leaders. Abdul Majid was a member of JAT’s governing council, also called the “Majelis Syuro,” from 2008 to 2013.

Abdul Majid also served as the head of JAT’s Central Java branch, as of late 2011. Abdul Majid in August 2010 conducted a swearing in ceremony for hundreds of JAT fighters, some of whom were expected to take violent action against the Indonesian police. In past years, Abdul Majid headed JAT recruitment efforts for a paramilitary wing that provided training for fighters, weapons experts, and hackers.

Abdul Majid has supported training activities for terrorist networks outside JAT, as well. As of early 2010, Abdul Majid donated approximately $2,000 to support the Aceh terrorist training camp, including weapons and ammunition purchases.
