Background

    The Kingpin Act became law on December 3, 1999. The Kingpin Act 
establishes a program targeting the activities of 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 the benefits of trade and transactions involving 
U.S. companies and individuals.
    The Kingpin Act blocks all property and interests in property, 
subject to U.S. jurisdiction, owned or controlled by significant 
foreign narcotics traffickers as identified by the President. In 
addition, 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, the 
Secretary of State, and the Secretary of Homeland Security may 
designate and block the property and interests in property, subject to 
U.S. jurisdiction, of foreign 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.
    On September 15, 2011, the Director of OFAC designated 5 entities 
whose property and interests in property are blocked pursuant to 
section 805(b) of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Designation Act. The 
list of designees is as follows:
