Pursuant to Section 766.24 of the Export Administration Regulations (‘‘EAR’’),1 the Bureau of Industry and 1 The EAR, which are currently codified at 15 CFR Parts 730–774 (2004), are issued under the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. app. 2401–2420—) (2000) (the ‘‘Act’’). From August 21, 1994 through November 12, 2000, the PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6409 Security (‘‘BIS’’), U.S. Department of Commerce, through its Office Export Enforcement (‘‘OEE’’), has requested that I issue an Order temporarily denying the export privileges under the EAR of Pakland PME Corporation (‘‘Pakland’’), Unit 7 & 8, 2nd Floor, Mohammadi Plaza, Jinnah Avenue, Blue Area, F–6/4, Islamabad–44000, Pakistan, and Humayun Khan (‘‘Khan’’), Unit 7 & 8, 2nd Floor, Mohammadi Plaza, Jinnah Avenue, Blue Area, F–6/4, Islamabad– 44000, Pakistan (hereinafter collectively referred to as the ‘‘Respondents’’). In its request, BIS has presented evidence that shows that Pakland and Khan, the owner and operator of Pakland, conspired with others, known and unknown, to cause items subject o the EAR to be illegally exported to Pakistan, that they caused and attempted to cause exports of items controlled for nuclear non-proliferation reasons to Pakistan with knowledge that violations of the EAR would occur, and that they took actions intended to evade the EAR. Specifically, the evidence shows that, from July 2003 through January 2004, Respondents conspired to have triggered spark gaps 2 and oscilloscopes 3 items included on the Commerce Control List and controlled for nuclear nonproliferation reasons, exported from the United States to Pakistan without the required BIS export licenses. The evidence also shows that Respondents developed and implemented a scheme to avoid the requirements of the EAR by causing these items exported through South Africa to Pakistan. More specifically, pursuant to direction from Respondents, on or about August 1, 2003, a purchase order for 200 triggered spark gaps was submitted to a U.S. Act was in lapse. During that period, the President, through Executive Order 12924, which had been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the last of which was August 3, 2000 ((3 CFR, 2000 Comp. 397 (2001)), continued the EAR in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1707 (2000)) (‘‘IEEPA’’). On November 13, 2000, the Act was reauthorized and it remained in effect through August 20, 2001. Since August 21, 2001, the Act has been in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp 783 (2002)), as extended by the Notice of August 6, 2004, (69 Federal Register 48763 (August 10, 2004)), continued the Regulations in effect under the IEEPA. 2 Triggered spark gaps are electronic switches that deliver a very high voltage with a very short delay once switched. Triggered spark gaps are used in medical lithotripters to disintegrate gallstones and kidney stones and are also used as triggers for nuclear weapons. 3 Oscilloscopes are used for testing and assembly of electronic equipment, and can be used in the development of nuclear weapons. The oscilloscopes in question are controlled under ECCN 3A292 and require a license for export to Pakistan for nuclear non-proliferation reasons. E:\FR\FM\07FEN1.SGM 07FEN1
