Gulf of Mexico Fishery Management Council; Public Meetings, 12839-12840 [E9-6506]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 56 / Wednesday, March 25, 2009 / Notices I have considered all of Balli’s arguments and with the exception of the argument involving Aircraft 4–6 find them without merit. I find that the evidence presented by BIS convincingly demonstrates that the Respondents have violated the EAR and the TDO involving re-exports of aircraft to Iran, that such violations have been significant, deliberate and covert, and that there is a likelihood of future violations. As such, a TDO is needed to give notice to persons and companies in the United States and abroad that they should continue to cease dealing with the Respondents in export transactions involving items subject to the EAR. Such a TDO is consistent with the public interest to prevent or preclude violations of the EAR. Accordingly, I find pursuant to Section 766.24, that renewal of the TDO for 180 days against Balli Group PLC, Balli Aviation, Balli Holdings, Vahid Alaghband, Hassan Alaghband, Blue Sky One Ltd., Blue Sky Two Ltd., Blue Sky Three Ltd., Blue Airways and Mahan Airways and both Related Persons is necessary in the public interest to prevent an imminent violation of the EAR. PWALKER on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES III.
