The Wall Street Journal on March 28, 2013 released the following:
“By Samuel Rubenfeld
The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control removed 10 people and a company from its blacklists on drug traffickers.
The 10 people separately petitioned OFAC to remove their names from the blacklists, and they provided “sufficient information” for OFAC to decide they ended their involvement with people on the blacklist who led them to be included themselves, a Treasury spokesman said.
They had been designated under the Kingpin Act or an executive order targeting Colombian drug traffickers.
The decision, announced in a notice Thursday, demonstrates that inclusion on the blacklists may not always be permanent, the spokesman said in an email.
Any person placed on the OFAC-maintained blacklists can petition to be removed. “In general, proof of changes in circumstances and behavior is key to a successful petition,” the spokesman said.
The full list of those removed on Thursday from OFAC’s blacklists is here.”
