Tabib pled guilty to willfully attempting to export and transship from the United States to Iran aircraft parts, including approximately three F–14 maintenance kits, without obtaining from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control, a license or written authorization for such export and transshipment. Tabib was sentenced to 24 months of imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release. 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 (the ‘‘Regulations’’),2 provide, in pertinent 1 50 U.S.C. app. 2401–2420.

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 at the time of his conviction. I have received notice of Tabib’s conviction for violating the IEEPA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Tabib 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 Tabib and, following consultations with the Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, I have decided to deny Tabib’s export privileges under the Regulations for a period of five years from the date of Tabib’s conviction. I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or Regulations in which Tabib had an interest at the time of his conviction. B.

Related Person.

A. Denial of Export Privileges of Reza Mohammed Tabib

    On May 8, 2007, in the U.S. District Court for the Central District 
of California, Reza Mohammed Tabib, a/k/a Re Tabib and a/k/a Reza Tabib 
(``Tabib'' or ``Reza Tabib'') following a plea of guilty, was convicted 
of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
1701-1706 (2000)) (``IEEPA''). Tabib pled guilty to willfully 
attempting to export and transship from the United States to Iran 
aircraft parts, including approximately three F-14 maintenance kits, 
without obtaining from the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of 
Foreign Assets Control, a license or written authorization for such 
export and transshipment. Tabib was sentenced to 24 months of 
imprisonment followed by three years of supervised release.
    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 (the 
``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,'' 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 at the time of his conviction.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ 50 U.S.C. app. 2401-2420. Since August 21, 2001, the Act has 
been in lapse and the Preident, 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 in the Code of 
Federal Regulations at 15 CFR Parts 730-774 (2008).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I have received notice of Tabib's conviction for violating the 
IEEPA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Tabib 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 Tabib and, following consultations with the Office of Export 
Enforcement, including its Director, I have decided to deny Tabib's 
export privileges under the Regulations for a period of five years from 
the date of Tabib's conviction. I have also decided to revoke all 
licenses issued pursuant to the Act or Regulations in which Tabib had 
an interest at the time of his conviction.

B. Denial of Export Privileges of Related Person

    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

[[Page 38972]]

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. Tern Tabib, a/k/a Tern 
Repic is Reza Tabib's wife and business partner. Tern Tabib pled guilty 
to violating 18 U.S.C. 1001 in connection with the attempted export by 
Reza Tabib of F-14 aircraft parts to Iran, specifically for willfully 
failing to file the Shipper's Export Declaration required for the 
export, and was placed on probation for two years. Tern Tabib is 
related to Reza Tabib by ownership, control, position of 
responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of 
trade or business. BIS believes that naming Tern Tabib as a person 
related to Reza Tabib is necessary to avoid evasion of the denial order 
against Reza Tabib.
    As provided in Section 766.23 of the Regulations, I gave notice to 
Tern Tabib that her export privileges under the Regulations could be 
denied for up to 10 years due to her relationship with Reza Tabib and 
that BIS believes naming her as a person related to Reza Tabib would be 
necessary to prevent evasion of a denial order imposed against Reza 
Tabib. In providing such notice, I gave Tern Tabib an opportunity to 
oppose her addition to the Reza Tabib Denial Order as a related party. 
Having received no submission from Tern Tabib, I have decided, 
following consultations with the Office of Export Enforcement, 
including its Director, to name Tern Tabib as a Related Person to the 
Reza Tabib Denial Order, thereby denying her export privileges for five 
years from the date of Reza Tabib's conviction.
    I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the 
Act or Regulations in which the Related Person had an interest at the 
time of Reza Tabib's conviction. The five-year denial period will end 
on May 8, 2012.
    Accordingly, it is hereby ordered:
