Background On March 6, 2003, the President, invoking the authority of, inter alia, the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–06) (‘‘IEEPA’’) issued Executive Order 13288 (68 FR 11457, March 10, 2003). In Executive Order 13288, the President declared a national emergency to deal with the threat posed by the actions and policies of certain members of the Government of Zimbabwe and other persons to undermine Zimbabwe’s democratic processes or institutions, contributing to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of law in VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:18 Dec 17, 2010 Jkt 223001 Zimbabwe, to politically motivated violence and intimidation in that country, and to political and economic instability in the southern African region. The Annex to Executive Order 13288 included 77 individuals, including two of the three individuals identified in this notice, which resulted in the blocking of all property and interests in property of these individuals that was or thereafter came within the United States or the possession or control of U.S. persons. Executive Order 13288 also authorized the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to designate additional persons determined to meet the criteria set forth in Executive Order 13288. On November 22, 2005, in order to take additional steps with respect to the continued actions and policies of certain persons who undermine Zimbabwe’s democratic processes and with respect to the national emergency described and declared in Executive Order 13288, the President, invoking the authority of, inter alia, IEEPA, issued Executive Order 13391 (70 FR 71201, November 25, 2005). Executive Order 13391 amends Executive Order 13288 and provides that the Annex to Executive Order 13288 is replaced and superseded in its entirety by the Annex to Executive Order 13391, containing the names of 128 individuals and 33 entities, including the three individuals identified in this notice.

Executive Order 13288, as amended by Executive Order 13991, also authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to determine that circumstances no longer warrant the inclusion of a person in the Annex to Executive Order 13288, as replaced and superseded by the Annex to Executive Order 13991, and to unblock any property and interests in property that had been blocked as a result of the person’s inclusion in the Annex. On December 14, 2010, the Director of OFAC, in consultation with the State Department, determined that circumstances no longer warrant the inclusion of the individuals listed below in the Annex to Executive Order 13288, as replaced and superseded by the Annex to Executive Order 13391, and that the property and interests in PO 00000 Frm 00111 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 property of the individuals listed below are therefore no longer blocked pursuant to section 1(a) of Executive Order 13288, as amended by Executive Order 13391, and accordingly removed them from the SDN List. • DABENGWA, Dumiso; DOB 6 Dec 1939; Passport AD000005 (Zimbabwe); Politburo Committee Member (individual) [ZIMBABWE] • DABENGWA, Ijeoma; DOB 27 Oct 1971; Passport AN032426 (Zimbabwe); Child of Dumiso Dabengwa (individual) [ZIMBABWE] • LESABE, Thenjiwe; DOB 5 Jan 1933; Politburo Committee Member (individual) [ZIMBABWE] Dated: December 14, 2010.

Background

    On July 22, 2004, President Bush issued Executive Order 13348 
(``the order'' or ``EO 13348''), finding that the actions and policies 
of former Liberian President Charles Taylor and other persons, in 
particular their unlawful depletion of Liberian resources and their 
removal from Liberia, and secreting of Liberian funds and property, 
undermined Liberia's transition to democracy, the orderly development 
of Liberia's political, administrative, and economic institutions and 
resources, and fueled and exacerbated other conflicts throughout West 
Africa. The President found that the actions, policies, and 
circumstances described above constituted an unusual and extraordinary 
threat to the foreign policy of the United States and declared a 
national emergency to deal with that threat.
    The order included 28 persons in the Annex, which resulted in the 
blocking of all property or interests in property of these persons that 
was or thereafter came within the United States or the possession or 
control of U.S. persons. The order authorizes the Secretary of the 
Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to designate 
additional persons or entities determined to meet certain criteria set 
forth in EO 13348.
    The order also authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury, in 
consultation with the Secretary of State, to determine that 
circumstances no longer warrant the inclusion of a person in the Annex 
to EO 13348 and to unblock any property or interests in property that 
had been blocked as a result of the person's inclusion in the Annex.
    On December 14, 2010, the Director of OFAC, in consultation with 
the State Department, determined that circumstances no longer warrant 
the inclusion of the individual listed below in the Annex to EO 13448 
and that the property and interests in property of the individual 
listed below are therefore no longer blocked pursuant to section 1(a) 
of EO 13448, and accordingly removed him from the list of Specially 
Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons.
