Background

    On April 12, 2010, the President issued Executive Order 13536, 
``Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Conflict in 
Somalia'' (the ``Order''), pursuant to, inter alia, the International 
Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-06). In the Order, the 
President declared a national emergency to address the deterioration of 
the security situation and the persistence of violence in Somalia and 
acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast of Somalia.
    Section 1 of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all 
property and interests in property that are in the United States, that 
come within the United States, or that are or come within the 
possession or control of any United States person, of persons listed in 
the Annex to the Order and of persons determined by the Secretary of 
the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to satisfy 
certain criteria set forth in the Order. The Annex to the Order lists 
eleven individuals and one entity whose property and interests in 
property are blocked pursuant to the Order.
    On July 29, 2011, the Director of OFAC, in consultation with the 
Secretary of State and other relevant agencies, designated Omar Hammami 
as an individual whose property and interests in property are blocked 
pursuant to the Order for acting or purporting to act for or on behalf 
of, directly or indirectly, al-Shabaab pursuant to subsection 
1(a)(ii)(E) of the Order; for engaging in acts that directly or 
indirectly threaten the peace, security, or stability of Somalia 
pursuant to subsections 1(a)(ii)(A)(1) and (2) of the Order and for 
materially assisting, sponsoring, or providing financial, material, 
logistical, or technical support for, or goods or services in support 
of al-Shabaab pursuant to subsection 1(a)(ii)(D) of the Order.
    Omar Hammami is one of Al-Shabaab's key figures, who has commanded 
guerilla forces in combat, organized attacks, and plotted strategy with 
Al Qaeda. Omar Hammami's roles in Al-Shabaab include those of a 
military tactician, recruitment strategist and financial manager.
    Omar Hammami is featured in an Al-Shabaab video in which militia 
members are shown training and explicitly stating their allegiance to 
Osama bin Laden, in what appeared to be an attempt to increase 
recruiting among Somalis, including Somali [eacute]migr[eacute]s in the 
United States.
    Omar Hammami was involved in organizing a suicide bombing attack 
carried out by a Somali-American from Minnesota who traveled to Somalia 
to join Al-Shabaab. That attack and four others organized by Omar 
Hammami and carried out on October 28, 2008, killed more than 20 
people.
    Omar Hammami, a U.S. citizen, has been indicted in the Southern 
District of Alabama on a three-count indictment for allegedly providing 
material support, including himself as personnel, to terrorists; 
conspiring to provide material support to a designated foreign 
terrorist organization, Al-Shabaab; and providing material support to 
Al-Shabaab.
    As a result of this designation, all property and interests in 
property of Omar Hammami that are or hereafter

Hammami is prohibited unless authorized, as is any transaction or 
dealing that evades or avoids this prohibition. It is also unlawful for 
any person to conspire to violate, attempt to violate, or cause a 
violation of this prohibition.
    OFAC has discretion to issue licenses authorizing specific 
transactions that are otherwise prohibited by the Order. All requests 
for specific licenses should be made in writing to the Assistant 
Director for Licensing, U.S. Department of the Treasury, Office of 
Foreign Assets Control, 1500 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC
