In the Matter of: Joseph Piquet, 76067–004, currently incarcerated at FCI Miami, Federal Correctional Institution, P.O. Box 779800, Miami, FL 33177, and 1258 SW. Maplewood Dr., Port St. Lucie, FL 34986, Respondent, Alphatronx, Inc., 1258 SW. Maplewood Drive, Port St. Lucie, FL 34986, Related Person. Order Making Order Denying Export Privileges of Joseph Piquet Applicable to Related Person Alphatronx, Inc. Pursuant to Sections 766.25(h) and 766.23 of the Export Administration Regulations 1 (‘‘EAR’’), the Bureau of Industry and Security (‘‘BIS’’), U.S. Department of Commerce, through its Office of Export Enforcement (‘‘OEE’’), has requested that I make the Denial Order that was imposed against the individual Joseph Piquet (‘‘Piquet’’) on May 28, 2010 (75 FR 32742, June 9, 2010) applicable to Alphatronx, Inc. (‘‘Alphatronx’’), 1258 SW. Maplewood Dr., Port St. Lucie, FL, 34986, (hereinafter, the ‘‘Related Person’’), as a person related to Piquet. Section 766.23 of the EAR provides that ‘‘[i]n order to prevent evasion, certain types of orders under this part may be made applicable not only to the respondent, but also to other persons then or thereafter related to the respondent by ownership, control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business. Orders that may be made applicable to related persons include those that deny or affect export privileges * * *.’’ 15 CFR 766.23(a). On May 28, 2010, I issued an Order pursuant to Section 11(h) of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (currently codified at 50 U.S.C. app. sections 2401–2420 (2000)) (‘‘Act’’) 2 and Section 766.25 of the EAR denying the export privileges under the Regulations of Piquet for 10 years. The Order was based on Piquet’s conviction of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq. 1 The EAR are currently codified at 15 CFR Parts 730–774 (2010). 2 50 U.S.C. app. sections 2401–2420 (2000). 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)), which has been extended by successive Presidential Notices, the most recent being that of August 12, 2010 (75 FR 50,681 (Aug. 16, 2010)), has continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq. (2000)). PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 63801 (2000)) (‘‘IEEPA’’) and Section 38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778 (2000)). Piquet was convicted based on his role in a conspiracy to purchase high-tech military and dualuse electronic components from a domestic corporation and to then ship the items from the United States to Hong Kong and the People’s Republic of China without first obtaining the required export licenses. Among the commodities involved in this conspiracy were high power amplifiers designed for use by the U.S. military in early warning radar and missile target acquisition systems, and low noise amplifiers that have both commercial and military use. BIS has presented evidence that indicates that Alphatronx is related to Piquet by ownership, control, position of responsibility, affiliation, or other connection in the conduct of trade or business, and that it is necessary to add this entity to the Piquet Denial Order in order to avoid evasion of that Order. The basis for naming Alphatronx to the Piquet Denial Order is that Piquet is the owner and President of Alphatronx and that Piquet made the decisions to utilize his company Alphatronx to carry out the conspiracy and subsequent violations of the AECA and IEEPA. As provided in Section 766.23 of the EAR, I gave notice to Alphatronx that its export privileges under the EAR could be denied for up to 10 years due to its relationship with Piquet and that BIS believes naming Alphatronx as a related party to Piquet would be necessary to prevent evasion of a denial order imposed against Piquet. In providing such notice, I gave Alphatronx an opportunity to oppose its addition to the Piquet Denial Order as a related party. Having received no submission, I have decided, following consultations with BIS’s Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, to name Alphatronx as a Related Person to the Piquet Denial Order, thereby denying Alphatronx export privileges for 10 years from the date of Piquet’s conviction. I have also decided to revoke all licenses issued pursuant to the Act or EAR in which Alphatronx had an interest at the time of Piquet’s conviction. The 10-year denial period will end on May 14, 2019. Accordingly, it is hereby ordered: First, that having been provided notice and opportunity for comment as provided in Sections 766.25 and 766.23 of the Export Administration Regulations (the ‘‘Regulations’’), the following entity, Alphatronx, Inc., with a last known address at 1258 SW.
