Background

    On December 3, 1999, the Kingpin Act was signed into law by the 
President of the United States. The Kingpin Act provides a statutory 
framework for the President to impose sanctions against 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 to the benefits of trade and 
transactions involving U.S. persons and entities.
    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 consults 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 when designating and 
blocking the property or interests in property, subject to U.S. 
jurisdiction, of persons or entities 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; and/or (3) 
playing a significant role in international narcotics trafficking.
    On December 19, 2012, the Director of OFAC removed from the SDN 
List the five individuals and two entities listed below, whose property 
and interests in property were blocked pursuant to the Kingpin Act:
