On 18 June, OFAC announced that The National Bank of Pakistan, New York Branch (“NBP”), agreed to pay $28,800 to settle apparent sanctions violations. Between 6 June 2013 and 31 January 2014, NBP processed seven funds transfers, totalling $55,952.14, to an account held by Kyrgyz Trans Avia. The US government designated Kyrgyz Trans Avia, an airline based in Kyrgyzstan, under the Specially Designated Global Terrorist programme on 31 May 2013 because it had served as an intermediary for Iran’s Mahan Air and Iran Air in acquiring aircraft. NBP’s sanctions interdiction filter failed to generate an alert for the transactions, and the transactions were processed straight through. The transactions were not self-disclosed, and OFAC considered them a non-egregious case.
