[Public Notice: 9977] SUMMARY: ACTION: mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Designation of Mubarak Mohammed A Alotaibi, aka Abu Ghayth, aka Waqqas al-Jazrawi, as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Acting under the authority of and in accordance with section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, as amended by Executive Order 13268 of July 2, 2002, and Executive Order 13284 of January 23, 2003, I hereby determine that the person known as Mubarak Mohammed A Alotaibi, aka Abu Ghayth, aka Waqqas al-Jazrawi, poses a significant risk of committing acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States. Consistent with the determination in section 10 of Executive Order 13224 that prior notice to persons determined to be subject to the Order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States would render ineffectual the blocking and other measures authorized in the Order because of the ability to transfer funds instantaneously, I determine that no prior notice needs to be provided to any person subject to this determination who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, because to do so would render ineffectual the measures authorized in the Order. This notice shall be published in the Federal Register. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: March 23, 2017. Rex W. Tillerson, Secretary of State.
