Specifically, Kharbey was convicted of fraudulently and knowingly exporting firearms and magazines, designated as defense articles on the United States Munitions List, from the United States to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, without having first obtained a license or other approval from the United Department of State, in violation of 18 U.S.C. 554. Kharbey was sentenced to 36 months in prison, supervised release for three years, a $200 special assessment and restitution of $755,281.13. Pursuant to Section 1760(e) of the Export Control Reform Act (‘‘ECRA’’),1 the export privileges of any person who has been convicted of certain offenses, including, but not limited to, 18 U.S.C. 554(a), may be denied for a period of up to ten (10) years from the date of his/her conviction. 50 U.S.C. 4819(e) (Prior Convictions). In addition, any Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) licenses or other authorizations issued under ECRA, in which the person had an interest at the time of the conviction, may be revoked. Id. 1 ECRA was enacted as part of the John S. McCain National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019, and as amended is codified at 50 U.S.C. 4801–4852.

Based upon my review of the record and consultations with BIS’s Office of Exporter Services, including its Director, and the facts available to BIS, I have decided to deny Kharbey’s export privileges under the Regulations for a period of seven years from the date of Kharbey’s conviction. The Office of Exporter Services has also decided to revoke any BIS-issued licenses in which Kharbey had an interest at the time of his conviction.3 Accordingly, it is hereby Ordered: First, from the date of this Order until May 31, 2026, Fahad Saleem Kharbey, with a last known address of Inmate Number: 66834–018, FMC Lexington, Federal Medical Center, P.O.

Applying for, obtaining, or using any license, license exception, or export control document; B. Carrying on negotiations concerning, or ordering, buying, receiving, using, selling, delivering, 2 The Regulations are currently codified in the Code of Federal Regulations at 15 CFR parts 730– 774 (2020). 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’’). Section 1768 of ECRA, 50 U.S.C. 4826, provides in pertinent part that all rules and regulations that were made or issued under the EAA, including as continued in effect pursuant to IEEPA, and were in effect as of ECRA’s date of enactment (August 13, 2018), shall continue in effect according to their terms until modified, superseded, set aside, or revoked through action undertaken pursuant to the authority provided under ECRA. See note 1 above. 3 The Director, Office of Export Enforcement, is now the authorizing official for issuance of denial orders, pursuant to recent amendments to the Regulations (85 FR 73411, November 18, 2020).
