(2012)) (‘‘IEEPA’’). Specifically, Aydin was convicted of violating IEEPA by exporting, causing to be exported, and attempting to export and cause the export of a General Electric CF6–50c2 engine, bearing manufacture’s serial number 517621, with the intention of directly or indirectly supplying this item to Iran, and specifically to Mahan Airways,2 via transshipment through Turkey, without having first obtained the required U.S. Government authorization. Aydin was sentenced to nine (9) months and ten (10) days in prison, three years of supervised release, and an assessment of $100. Aydin also was placed on the U.S. Department of State Debarred List. The Export Administration Regulations (‘‘EAR’’ or ‘‘Regulations’’) are administered and enforced by the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security (‘‘BIS’’).3 1 Mahan Airways (‘‘Mahan’’) has been subject to a BIS-issued temporary denial order (TDO) issued on March 17, 2008, and effective upon publication in the Federal Register on March 21, 2008. See 73 FR 15,130. The TDO remains in effect against Mahan Airways, having been renewed most recently on June 5, 2019. See 84 FR 27,233. Additionally, in October 2011, the Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control designated Mahan as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist pursuant to Executive Order 13,224. 3 The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of Federal Regulations at 15 CFR parts 730– 774 (2019). The Regulations originally issued under the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended, 50 U.S.C. 4601–4623 (Supp. III 2015) (‘‘EAA’’), which lapsed on August 21, 2001. The President, through Executive Order 13,222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR, 2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), which was extended by successive Presidential Notices, continued the Regulations in full force and effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701, et seq. (2012) (‘‘IEEPA’’). On August 13, 2018, the President signed into law the John S. McCain National VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:08 Dec 09, 2019 Jkt 250001 Section 766.25 of the Regulations provides, in pertinent part, that the ‘‘Director of [BIS’s] Office of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of [BIS’s] Office of Export Enforcement, may deny the export privileges of any person who has been convicted of a violation of . . . the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701–1706).’’ 15 CFR 766.25(a). The denial of export privileges under this provision may be for a period of up to 10 years from the date of the conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(d).4 In addition, pursuant to Section 750.8 of the Regulations, BIS’s Office of Exporter Services may revoke any BIS-issued licenses in which the person had an interest at the time of his/ her conviction.5 BIS received notice of Aydin’s conviction for violating IEEPA and, pursuant to Section 766.25 of the Regulations, provided notice and an opportunity for Aydin to make a written submission to BIS. BIS has received a written submission from Aydin. Based upon my review of the record, including Aydin’s written submission, and consultations with BIS’s Office of Export Enforcement, including its Director, and the facts available to BIS, I have decided to deny Aydin’s export privileges under the Regulations for a period of 10 years from the date of Aydin’s conviction. I have also decided to revoke any BIS-issued licenses in which Aydin had an interest at the time of his conviction. Accordingly, it is hereby ordered: First, from the date of this Order until August 3, 2026, Oguzhan Aydin, with a last known address at Celepkoy Mahallesi Mikail Cikmazi No: 2/1, Catalca, Istanbul, Turkey, and when acting for or on his behalf, his successors, assigns, employees, agents or representatives (‘‘the Denied Person’’), may not directly or indirectly participate in any way in any transaction involving any commodity, software or technology (hereinafter Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, which includes the Export Control Reform Act of 2018, 50 U.S.C. 4801–4852 (‘‘ECRA’’).
