(hereinafter collectively referred to as the ‘‘Respondents’’) for 180 days. On October 1, 2007, I found that the evidence presented by BIS demonstrated that the Respondents have knowingly violated the EAR on multiple occasions between 2005 and 2007, by making false statements regarding the end-user and country of ultimate destination involving the export of items subject to the EAR from the United States. The evidence showed that Respondents concealed the true ultimate destination for the items, which was Iran, and that Respondents did not have the required U.S. Government authorization for the transactions. Additionally, in August 2007, Respondents Aviation Services International B.V. (‘‘ASI’’), Robert Kraaipoel, Delta Logistics B.V. (‘‘Delta’’) and T.P.C. B.V. (‘‘TPC’’) were criminally charged with five counts for similar misconduct involving the unlicensed export of U.S. origin items to Iran, including criminal violations of IEEPA and false statements as well. I further found that such violations had been significant, deliberate and covert, and were likely to occur again, especially given the nature of the transactions. For these reasons, I found that an imminent violation existed within the meaning of Section 766.24(b)(2). As such, a Temporary Denial Order (‘‘TDO’’) was needed to give notice to persons and companies in the United States and abroad that they should cease dealing with the Respondents in export transactions involving items subject to the EAR. Issuance of the TDO, rendered effective as of October 10, 2007, the date of publication in the Federal Register, was consistent with the public interest to preclude future violations of the EAR. OEE has presented additional evidence showing that on multiple occasions Lavantia, Ltd. and its owner, VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:21 Apr 10, 2008 Jkt 214001 Mita Zarek, have knowingly violated the TDO by continuing to engage in unauthorized transactions involving items subject to the EAR. Specifically, evidence shows that on or about November 26, 2007 and on or about February 9, 2008, shipper’s export declarations (‘‘SEDs’’) were filed in the Automated Tracking System, listing Lavantia, Ltd. as the ultimate consignee for exports involving U.S. origin items subject to the EAR. The SEDs show that Respondents Lavantia, Ltd. and Mita Zarek are using a different address in Cyprus to receive the items. The new address is Strovolou 77, Strovolos Center Suite 202, Strovolos P.C. 2018, Nicosia, Cyprus. In addition, the criminal charges against ASI, Robert Kraaipoel, Delta and TPC are still pending, and an arrest warrant is outstanding for Robert Kraaipoel. I now find, based on the circumstances that led to the initial issuance of the TDO and the additional evidence supplied by OEE, that the renewal of this TDO for a period of the 180 days is necessary and in the public interest, to prevent an imminent violation of the EAR. I also find it necessary to add the additional address for Respondents Lavantia, Ltd. and Mita Zarek to the Order. All parties to this TDO have been given notice of the request for renewal. It is therefore ordered: First, that the Respondents, AVIATION SERVICES INTERNATIONAL B.V., P.O.

Cyprus, and Strovolou 77, Strovolos Center Suite 202, Strovolos P.C. 
2018, Nicosia, Cyprus.
(hereinafter collectively referred to as the ``Respondents'') for 180 
days.
    On October 1, 2007, I found that the evidence presented by BIS 
demonstrated that the Respondents have knowingly violated the EAR on 
multiple occasions between 2005 and 2007, by making false statements 
regarding the end-user and country of ultimate destination involving 
the export of items subject to the EAR from the United States. The 
evidence showed that Respondents concealed the true ultimate 
destination for the items, which was Iran, and that Respondents did not 
have the required U.S. Government authorization for the transactions. 
Additionally, in August 2007, Respondents Aviation Services 
International B.V. (``ASI''), Robert Kraaipoel, Delta Logistics B.V. 
(``Delta'') and T.P.C. B.V. (``TPC'') were criminally charged with five 
counts for similar misconduct involving the unlicensed export of U.S. 
origin items to Iran, including criminal violations of IEEPA and false 
statements as well. I further found that such violations had been 
significant, deliberate and covert, and were likely to occur again, 
especially given the nature of the transactions. For these reasons, I 
found that an imminent violation existed within the meaning of Section 
766.24(b)(2). As such, a Temporary Denial Order (``TDO'') was needed to 
give notice to persons and companies in the United States and abroad 
that they should cease dealing with the Respondents in export 
transactions involving items subject to the EAR. Issuance of the TDO, 
rendered effective as of October 10, 2007, the date of publication in 
the Federal Register, was consistent with the public interest to 
preclude future violations of the EAR.
    OEE has presented additional evidence showing that on multiple 
occasions Lavantia, Ltd. and its owner, Mita Zarek, have knowingly 
violated the TDO by continuing to engage in unauthorized transactions 
involving items subject to the EAR. Specifically, evidence shows that 
on or about November 26, 2007 and on or about February 9, 2008, 
shipper's export declarations (``SEDs'') were filed in the Automated 
Tracking System, listing Lavantia, Ltd. as the ultimate consignee for 
exports involving U.S. origin items subject to the EAR. The SEDs show 
that Respondents Lavantia, Ltd. and Mita Zarek are using a different 
address in Cyprus to receive the items. The new address is Strovolou 
77, Strovolos Center Suite 202, Strovolos P.C. 2018, Nicosia, Cyprus.
    In addition, the criminal charges against ASI, Robert Kraaipoel, 
Delta and TPC are still pending, and an arrest warrant is outstanding 
for Robert Kraaipoel.
    I now find, based on the circumstances that led to the initial 
issuance of the TDO and the additional evidence supplied by OEE, that 
the renewal of this TDO for a period of the 180 days is necessary and 
in the public interest, to prevent an imminent violation of the EAR. I 
also find it necessary to add the additional address for Respondents 
Lavantia, Ltd. and Mita Zarek to the Order. All parties to this TDO 
have been given notice of the request for renewal.
    It is therefore ordered:
