In the Matter of: Khaldoun Hejazi, 1112 West Howe Street, Boise, 
ID 83706 Order Denying Export Privileges

Idaho, Khaldoun Hejazi (``Hejazi'') was convicted of violating Section 
38 of the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2778) (``AECA'').

conspiring to export, and causing to be exported, firearms from the 
United States, which were designated as defense articles on the United 
States Munitions List, without having first obtained the required 
licenses or written approval from the U.S. Department of State. As a

    Pursuant to Section 1760(e) of the Export Control Reform Act 
(``ECRA''), the export privileges of any person who has been convicted 
of certain offenses, including, but not limited to, Section 38 of the

of the AECA. BIS provided notice and opportunity for Hejazi to make a 
written submission to BIS, as provided in Section 766.25 of the Export
