Denial of Export Privileges of Xu Weibo, a/k/a Kevin Xu On May 4, 2006, in the District Court for the District of New Jersey, Xu Weibo, a/k/a ‘‘Kevin Xu’’ (‘‘Xu’’) pled guilty to knowingly and willfully ordering, buying, removing, concealing, storing, using, selling, loaning, disposing of, transferring, transporting, financing, forwarding and otherwise servicing, in whole or in part, items exported and to be exported from the U.S., specifically, certain Gallium Arsenide Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits to the People’s Republic of China, with knowledge that a violation of the Act, the Regulations and any order, license and authorization issued thereunder, had occurred, was about to occur or was intended to occur in connection with the items, in violation of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1706 (2000)) (‘‘IEEPA’’).

In addition, Xu also pled guilty to conspiring to violate the export control laws in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371. Xu was sentenced to 44 months of imprisonment for each of the three counts, to run concurrently, followed by two years of supervised release for each of three counts, to run concurrently. Section 11(h) of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (currently codified at 50 U.S.C. app. 2401–2420 (2000)) (the ‘‘Act’’) 1 and Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations (‘‘Regulations’’) 2 provide, in pertinent part, that ‘‘[t]he Director of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Export Enforcement, may deny export privileges of any person who has been convicted of a violation of * * * IEEPA and AECA,’’ for a period not to exceed 10 years from the date of conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(a) and (d). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that BIS’s Office of Exporter Services may revoke any BIS licenses previously issued in which the person had an interest in at the time of his conviction.

I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act of Regulations in which the 1 50 U.S.C. app. §§ 2401–2420. 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 15, 2007 (72 FR 46137, Aug. 16, 2007), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1706 (2000)) (‘‘IEEPA’’). 2 The Regulations are currently codified at 15 CFR parts 730–774 (2007).

These individuals all pled guilty to conspiring to violate the export control laws in connection with the export of Commerce and State controlled electronic components to the People’s Republic of China without the required license, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371. Based on this conspiracy, Hao Li Chen was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment, followed by two years of supervised release. Kwan Chun Chan was sentenced to two years of probation. Xiu Ling Chen was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment, followed by two years of supervised release.

A. Denial of Export Privileges of Xu Weibo, a/k/a Kevin Xu

    On May 4, 2006, in the District Court for the District of New 
Jersey, Xu Weibo, a/k/a ``Kevin Xu'' (``Xu'') pled guilty to knowingly 
and willfully ordering, buying, removing, concealing, storing, using, 
selling, loaning, disposing of, transferring, transporting, financing, 
forwarding and otherwise servicing, in whole or in part, items exported 
and to be exported from the U.S., specifically, certain Gallium 
Arsenide Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits to the People's 
Republic of China, with knowledge that a violation of the Act, the 
Regulations and any order, license and authorization issued thereunder, 
had occurred, was about to occur or was intended to occur in connection 
with the items, in violation of the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706 (2000)) (``IEEPA''). The involved 
Commerce controlled items were classified under Export Control 
Classification Number 3A001 on the

[[Page 69651]]

Commerce Control List and controlled for National Security (NS) and 
Anti-Terrorism (AT) reasons. Xu also pled guilty to knowingly and 
willfully exporting to the People's Republic of China defense articles, 
designated as ``military electronics'' on the United States Munitions 
list, namely, U.S. military-grade Monolithic Microwave Integrated 
Circuits, without first obtaining the required license for such export, 
in violation of Section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 
2778 (2000)) (``AECA''). In addition, Xu also pled guilty to conspiring 
to violate the export control laws in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371. Xu 
was sentenced to 44 months of imprisonment for each of the three 
counts, to run concurrently, followed by two years of supervised 
release for each of three counts, to run concurrently.
    Section 11(h) of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended 
(currently codified at 50 U.S.C. app. 2401-2420 (2000)) (the ``Act'') 
\1\ and Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations 
(``Regulations'') \2\ provide, in pertinent part, that ``[t]he Director 
of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of the Office 
of Export Enforcement, may deny export privileges of any person who has 
been convicted of a violation of * * * IEEPA and AECA,'' for a period 
not to exceed 10 years from the date of conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(a) 
and (d). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that 
BIS's Office of Exporter Services may revoke any BIS licenses 
previously issued in which the person had an interest in at the time of 
his conviction.
    I have received notice of Xu's conviction for violating the IEEPA 
and AECA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Xu to make a 
written submission to the Bureau of Industry and Security as provided 
in Section 766.25 of the Regulations. Having received no submission 
from Xu, I, following consultations with the Office of Export 
Enforcement, including its Director, have decided to deny Xu's export 
privileges under the Regulations for a period of 10 years from the date 
of Xu's conviction. I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued 
pursuant to the Act of Regulations in which the Related Persons had an 
interest at the time of Xu's conviction.

B. Denial of Export Privileges of Related Persons

    Pursuant to Sections 766.25(h) and 766.23 of the Regulations, the 
Director of BIS's Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the 
Director of BIS's Office of Export Enforcement, may take action to name 
persons related to a Respondent by ownership, control, position of 
responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of 
trade or business in order to prevent evasion of a denial order. I gave 
notice to Hao Li Chen (a/k/a ``Ali Chan''), Kwan Chun Chan, (a/k/a 
``Jenny Chan'') and Xiu Ling Chen (a/k/a ``Linda Chen''), notifying 
them that their export privileges under the Regulations could be denied 
for up to 10 years as BIS believes that they are related to Xu and that 
naming them as persons related to Xu would be necessary to prevent 
evasion of a denial order imposed against Xu. These individuals all 
pled guilty to conspiring to violate the export control laws in 
connection with the export of Commerce and State controlled electronic 
components to the People's Republic of China without the required 
license, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 371. Based on this conspiracy, Hao 
Li Chen was sentenced to 30 months imprisonment, followed by two years 
of supervised release. Kwan Chun Chan was sentenced to two years of 
probation. Xiu Ling Chen was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment, 
followed by two years of supervised release. Hao Li Chen, Kwan Chun 
Chan and Xiu Ling Chen are related to Xu by ownership, control, 
position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the 
conduct of trade or business because they all hold positions of 
responsibility in the same corporation as Xu, which is the corporation 
through which Xu's criminal violations took place.
    Having received no submission from the Related Persons, I have 
decided, following consultations with the Office of Export Enforcement, 
including its Director, to name them as related persons to the Xu 
Denial Order, thereby denying their export privileges for 10 years from 
the date of Xu's conviction.
    I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the 
Act or Regulations in which the Related Persons had an interest at the 
time of Xu's conviction. The 10-year denial period ends on May 4, 2016.
    Accordingly, it is hereby ordered,
    I. Until May 4, 2016, Xu Weibo, a/k/a ``Kevin Xu'', 21 Wood View 
Drive, Mt. Laurel, NJ 08504, and when acting for or on his behalf, his

agents or representatives, (``the Related Persons'') (together, the 
Denied Person and the Related Persons are ``Persons Subject To This
