Background

    On December 3, 1999, the Kingpin Act was signed into law by the 
President of the United States. The Kingpin Act provides a statutory 
framework for the President to impose sanctions against significant 
foreign narcotics traffickers and their organizations on a worldwide 
basis, with the objective of denying their businesses and agents access 
to the U.S. financial system and to the benefits of trade and 
transactions involving U.S. persons and entities.
    The Kingpin Act blocks all property and interests in property, 
subject to U.S. jurisdiction, that are owned or controlled by persons 
who have been identified by the President as significant foreign 
narcotics traffickers. In addition, the Act separately provides that 
the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Attorney 
General, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Director 
of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Administrator of the Drug 
Enforcement Administration, the Secretary of Defense, and the Secretary 
of State, may designate and block the property and interests in 
property, subject to U.S. jurisdiction, of persons who are found to be: 
(1) Materially assisting in, or providing financial or technological 
support for or to, or providing goods or services in support of, the 
international narcotics trafficking activities of a person designated 
pursuant to the Kingpin Act; (2) owned, controlled, or directed by, or 
acting for or on behalf of, a person designated pursuant to the Kingpin 
Act; or (3) playing a significant role in international narcotics 
trafficking. The authority to identify, designate, and block the 
property and interests in property of persons under the Kingpin Act is 
delegated to the Director of OFAC pursuant to 31 CFR 598.803.
    On February 3, 2016, the Acting Director of OFAC removed from the 
SDN List the individuals listed below, whose property and interests in
