E9–12290 Filed 5–22–09; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–16–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Bureau of Industry and Security [08–B IS–0005] In the Matter of: Micei International, Respondent; Final Decision and Order This matter is before me upon a Recommended Decision and Order (‘‘RDO’’) of an Administrative Law Judge (‘‘ALJ’’), as further described below. In a charging letter filed on July 1, 2008, and amended on January 9, 2009, the Bureau of Industry and Security (‘‘BIS’’) alleged that Respondent Micei International (‘‘Micei’’) committed fourteen violations of the Export Administration Regulations (currently codified at 15 CFR Parts 730–774 (2009) (‘‘Regulations’’)), issued pursuant to the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (50 U.S.C. app. 2401–2420) (the ‘‘EAA’’ or ‘‘Act’’),1 stemming from its knowing participation in seven export transactions using an individual subject to a Denial Order as an employee or agent to negotiate for and/ or purchase items in the United States for export from the United States to Micei in Macedonia. The charges are as follows: 1. Since August 21, 2001, the Act has been in lapse, and the President, through Executive Order 13,222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of July 23, 2008 (73 FR 43,603, July 25, 2008), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701– 1707). Charges 1–7; 15 CFR 764.2(b): Causing, Aiding, Abetting, Inducing and/or Permitting a Violation of a Denial Order As described in further detail in the attached schedule of violations, which is incorporated herein by reference, on seven occasions between on or about July 2, 2003, and on or about October 8, 2003, Micei caused, aided, abetted, induced and/or permitted acts prohibited by the Regulations, namely, the violations by Yuri Montgomery PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (‘‘Montgomery’’) of a BIS order denying Montgomery’s export privileges under Section 766.25 of the Regulations (the ‘‘Denial Order’’). Specifically, Micei authorized, requested, and/or arranged for Montgomery to negotiate for and/or make certain purchases for or on behalf of Micei of items subject to the Regulations for export from the United States to Micei in Macedonia. To further facilitate these purchases, Micei also contacted Montgomery and provided information on the items to be ordered and their approximate cost, and identified the vendors from which to order them. With Micei’s knowledge and/or permission, Montgomery operated or held himself out as Micei’s employee or agent, including indicating in an e-mail to a U.S. supplier that Micei had a U.S. regional office in Seattle, Washington, where Montgomery was located, and that Micei was interested in forming a distributorship relationship with the supplier. That email was copied to Micei’s president and signed by Montgomery with ‘‘Micei Int’l Reg[ional] Off[ice].’’ As part of these actions, Montgomery carried on negotiations concerning, ordered, bought, sold and/or financed various items that were subject to the Regulations and were exported or to be exported from the United States to Micei in Macedonia, and Montgomery benefitted from these transactions, in violation of the Denial Order. The Denial Order is dated September 11, 2000, and was published in the Federal Register on September 22, 2000 (65 FR 57,313). Under the terms of the Denial Order, Montgomery ‘‘may not directly or indirectly, participate in any way in any transaction involving any [item] exported or to be exported from the United States, that is subject to the Regulations, or in any other activity subject to the Regulations, including [c]arrying on negotiations concerning, or ordering, buying, receiving, using, selling, delivering, storing, disposing of, forwarding, transporting, financing, or otherwise servicing in any way, any transaction involving any item exported or to be exported from the United States that is subject to the Regulations, or in any other activity subject to the Regulations; or * * * [b]enefitting in any way from any transaction involving any item exported or to be exported from the United States that is subject to the Regulations, or in any other activity subject to the Regulations.’’ The Denial Order is effective until January 22, 2009, and continued in force at the time of the aforementioned actions. In so doing, Micei committed seven violations of Section 764.2(b) of the Regulations. E:\FR\FM\26MYN1.SGM 26MYN1
