“US Sanctions Iranian Venezuelan Bi-National Bank”

May 10, 2013

Latin American Herald Tribune on May 10, 2013 released the following:

“US Treasury Identifies Front Company and Vessels Attempting to Obscure Iranian Oil Deals Using Ship-to-Ship Transfers and Designates Venezuelan Iranian Bank

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The U.S. Department of the Treasury placed a Venezuelan Iranian Bank and an Iranian shipping company which were being used to circumvent international financial sanctions on the Office of Foreign Assets Control list.

The Treasury Department also imposed sanctions against Iranian Venezuelan Bi-National Bank (IVBB). IVBB was designated pursuant to Executive Order 13382, which targets proliferators of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their supporters, for engaging in financial transactions on behalf of the previously sanctioned Export Development Bank of Iran (EDBI).

The Iranian Venezuelan Bi-National Bank (IVBB) is being designated for its activities on behalf of the Export Development Bank of Iran (EDBI). EDBI was designated under E.O. 13382 on October 22, 2008, for providing financial services to Iran’s Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL).

IVBB has been processing funds transfers on behalf of EDBI since at least January 2012. EDBI has used IVBB to act as a proxy to fund export activities and to transfer millions of dollars worth of funds from China’s Bank of Kunlun to EDBI. Additionally, senior EDBI staff is entitled to authorize transaction instructions to Bank of Kunlun on behalf of IVBB.

Bank of Kunlun was sanctioned by the U.S. Treasury Department under Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act of 2010 (CISADA) on July 31, 2012, for providing financial services to more than six Iranian banks that were designated by the U.S. in connection with Iran’s WMD programs or its support for international terrorism. Prior to the sanctions imposed against it under the CISADA, Bank of Kunlun was engaged in a significant amount of direct of business with EDBI, handling the equivalent of tens of millions of dollars worth of funds for EDBI.

IVBB was originally established as a joint venture between Iran and Venezuela, and EDBI was the Iranian party tasked with creating the joint venture with Venezuela. However, there is no evidence Venezuela retains any ties to this bank.

As part of the Treasury Department’s continuing vigilance against Iran’s efforts to use front companies and deceptive business practices to sell their oil on the international market, today Treasury identified Sambouk Shipping FZC as subject to sanctions under Executive Order (E.O.) 13599, which, among other things, targets the Government of Iran (GOI) and persons acting for or on behalf of the GOI. Sambouk Shipping is tied to Dr. Dimitris Cambis who, along with a network of front companies, were sanctioned in March 2013 under E.O. 13599 and the Iran Threat Reduction Act and Syria Human Rights Act of 2012 (TRA) after the U.S. government uncovered Dr. Cambis’s scheme to evade international oil sanctions against Iran. In an attempt to continue his scheme, Dr. Cambis is using the recently formed Sambouk Shipping to manage eight of the vessels that he operates on behalf of the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC). These vessels have been used to execute ship-to-ship transfers of Iranian oil in the Persian Gulf. These transfers are intended to facilitate deceptive sales of Iranian oil by obscuring the origin of that oil.

“As Iran becomes increasingly isolated from the international financial system and energy markets, it is turning increasingly to convoluted schemes and shady actors to maintain its access to the global financial system,” said Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen. “As long as Iran tries to evade our sanctions, we will continue to expose their deceptive maneuvers.”

Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control is also updating its list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List) entries today for eight vessels blocked due to the interest of National Iranian Tanker Company in the vessels. Since their original identification these vessels have been renamed and/or reflagged. Treasury is also identifying eight previously unidentified vessels as blocked property in which NITC has an interest. Including today’s additions, Treasury has identified 64 vessels as blocked property in which NITC has an interest.

U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with the entities listed today, and any assets those entities may have subject to U.S. jurisdiction are frozen.

U.S. Imposes New Sanctions On Iran Proliferators, Companies Linked To Regime

July 17, 2012

RTT News on July 12, 2012 released the following:

“(RTTNews) – The U.S. Treasury Department announced Thursday it is sanctioning a number of companies and individuals tied to weapons proliferation in Iran or circumvention of existing sanctions on the Iranian regime.

“Iran today is under intense, multilateral sanctions pressure, and we will continue to ratchet up the pressure so long as Iran refuses to address the international community’s well-founded concerns about its nuclear program,” Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen said in a press release.

He added, “Today’s actions are our next step on that path, taking direct aim at disrupting Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs as well as its deceptive efforts to use front companies to sell and move its oil.”

Today’s new sanctions came in two parts: 1) placing sanctions on 15 entities or individuals involved in supporting Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs and 2) publicly sanctioning over 25 companies and individuals as Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) who have repeatedly acted to circumvent current sanctions on the Iranian regime.

Both sets of sanctions block all U.S. persons and companies from engaging in any transactions with the designated entities and individuals.

Most of the entities designated under the first set of sanctions (E.O. 13382) are tied to Iran’s Ministry of Defense for Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL) and its subsidiary Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO).

Under executive order 13382, which is “aimed at freezing the assets of proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and their supporters and isolating them financially,” Treasury can prohibit all transactions between the designees and any U.S. person and freeze any assets the designees may have under U.S. jurisdiction, according to the State Department.

Electronic Components Industries Co. (ECI) and Information Systems Iran (ISIRAN), one of the largest and most experienced information technology companies in Iran, and Daniel Frosch, an Austrian exporter currently living in Dubai, were both designated under E.O. 13382. Frosch had previously been under investigation by Austria for exporting components that could be used in nuclear weapons to Iran.

The second set of sanctions, pursuant under E.O. 13599 or the SDN List, targets “individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups, and entities, such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific,” according to Treasury.

Petro Suisse Intertrade Company SA (Switzerland), Hong Kong Intertrade Company, Noor Energy Ltd, (Malaysia) and Petro Energy Intertrade Company (Dubai) were all added to the SDN List today “because they are owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, the Government of Iran,” Treasury said.

Twenty Iranian financial institutions were also designated as SDN as well as 58 National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) vessels, the NITC itself and 27 of its affiliated entities.

Pundits have argued over the efficiency of the U.S. government’s two-track approach to Iran – on the one hand, pressuring the regime with sanctions and on the other, urging them to discuss their nuclear program during meetings with the international community.

However, recent leaks from Iran showing state-owned news agencies being discouraged from reporting the effects of sanctions could show the steps are having an impact.

“Our country is not in a position to allow the media to publish news or analysis which is not compatible with the regime’s and national interests,” Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance chief Mohammad Hosseini recently told local media site dolat.ir in uncharacteristically candid terms.

He added, “The situation regarding sanctions and other pressures, especially in economy … requires more cooperation by the media so the country is not hurt.”

The next round of working-level meetings between Iran and the P5+1, the international group charged with discussing the Iranian nuclear program, will take place in Istanbul on July 24th.

United States Increases Sanctions Against The Government Of Iran And Its Proliferation Networks

7/12/2012
Treasury and State Department Actions Target More Than 50 Entities

Tied to Iran’s Procurement, Petroleum, and Shipping Networks

WASHINGTON – Today, the United States is imposing additional sanctions on Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile proliferation networks, and is also taking additional steps to prevent the evasion of sanctions by publicly identifying a group of Iranian front companies and banks. These actions are part of the United States government’s dual-track approach of increasing pressure to convince Iran to engage seriously and address the international community’s concerns about its nuclear program.

“Iran today is under intense, multilateral sanctions pressure, and we will continue to ratchet up the pressure so long as Iran refuses to address the international community’s well-founded concerns about its nuclear program,” said Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen. “Today’s actions are our next step on that path, taking direct aim at disrupting Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs as well as its deceptive efforts to use front companies to sell and move its oil.”

Targeting Iran’s Nuclear and Missile Proliferation Activities

Since 2005, the United States has imposed a series of targeted, conduct-based sanctions under Executive Order (E.O.) 13382, “Blocking Property of Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferators and Their Supporters,” on persons, firms and financial institutions involved in Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile programs. This sustained sanctions effort has both disrupted the progress of Iran’s nuclear and ballistic missile program and imposed significant pressure on the Iranian government.

Continuing the effort to target Iran’s nuclear and missile proliferation activities, the U.S. Departments of the Treasury and State are today designating 11 entities and four individuals under E.O. 13382. As described in more detail in the accompanying Fact Sheet, many of the individuals and entities designated today are part of a network of proliferators headed by Iran’s Ministry of Defense for Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL) and its subsidiary, Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO). A number of additional designations are related to Iran’s national maritime carrier, Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL), and Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), both of which have been the target of a numerous sanctions actions by the United States and our partners around the world.

Preventing the Circumvention of International Sanctions on Iran

The Treasury Department is also acting today to prevent the circumvention of international sanctions on Iran – including sanctions on oil trade with Iran – by publicly exposing numerous Iranian front companies, ships and banks that are part of the Government of Iran. The specific entities identified in today’s action are described in the accompanying Fact Sheet.

Treasury is identifying these Government of Iran entities pursuant to E.O. 13599, which blocks all property and interests in property within U.S. jurisdiction of the Government of Iran and of all Iranian financial institutions, and prohibits U.S. persons or those within U.S. jurisdiction from having dealings with them. To assist U.S. persons in complying with their obligation to freeze the assets of, and not to deal with, any such entities, the Treasury Department from time to time identifies entities that are owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, the Government of Iran.

Today’s identifications include four front companies for the Naftiran Intertrade Company (NICO) or the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) — Petro Suisse Intertrade Company SA; Hong Kong Intertrade Company; Noor Energy (Malaysia) Ltd.; and Petro Energy Intertrade Company. NICO intended to use Petro Energy Intertrade to evade western sanctions. The Treasury Department identified NICO and NIOC, both of which are centrally involved in the sale of Iranian oil, in 2008 as entities that are owned or controlled by the Government of Iran.

The Treasury Department is also identifying today the National Iranian Tanker Company (NITC) as a Government of Iran entity and, for the first time, the NITC fleet and various front companies belonging to NITC. In addition, the Treasury Department is also identifying 20 Iranian financial institutions for inclusion on its List of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons (SDN List).

These identifications highlight Iran’s attempts to evade sanctions through the use of front companies, as well as its attempts to conceal its tanker fleet by repainting, reflagging, or disabling GPS devices. They will assist U.S. persons in complying with E.O. 13599, and will also assist persons and entities around the world in complying with U.S. and international sanctions, including the European Union’s prohibition on the import of Iranian oil that went into effect on July 1, 2012.

U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any transactions with individuals or entities blocked pursuant to E.O 13382 or E.O. 13599, and any assets such persons may have under U.S. jurisdiction are blocked. Entry into the United States of aliens designated pursuant to E.O. 13382 is suspended under Presidential Proclamation 8693, Suspension of Entry of Aliens Subject to U.S. Security Council Travel Ban and International Emergency Economic Powers Act Sanctions.

For more information on today’s designations, please see the attached fact sheet.
