On February 22, the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced sanctions pursuant to Executive Order 14014 against two individuals connected to a Burmese military coup. The sanctions build upon actions taken by OFAC earlier in the month against 10 current or former military officials as well as three Burmese entities (covered by InfoBytes here), and reaffirms the U.S.’s continued work to “promote accountability for those responsible for attempting to reverse Burma’s progress toward democracy.” As a result of the sanctions all property and interests in property belonging to the sanctioned individuals and “any entities that are owned, directly or indirectly, 50 percent or more by them, individually, or with other blocked persons,” subject to U.S. jurisdiction are blocked and must be reported to OFAC. U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in any dealings involving the property or interests in property of blocked or designated persons, unless exempt or authorized by a general or specific license.
