The U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control said Tuesday it removed 16 Colombians, a Colombian company and an Iranian from its blacklists.
A Treasury spokesman said in an email the individuals petitioned OFAC to remove their names, and they provided the office with sufficient information to prove they cut their ties with those that led them to be placed under Kingpin Act sanctions in the first place.
“The decision by OFAC…is evidence of the fair process of administrative review, and shows that inclusion on the SDN List is not always permanent,” the spokesman said.
In addition, OFAC removed Hessam Khoshnevis from its Iran and counter-terrorism sanctions lists. Khoshnevis, a commander in Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, was reportedly killed in Syria by rebels fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime.”
