Background

On October 27, 2006, the President signed Executive Order 13413 (the “Order” or “E.O. 13413”) pursuant to,inter alia,the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701et seq.) (IEEPA) and section 5 of the United Nations Participation Act, as amended (22 U.S.C. 287c) (UNPA). In the Order, the President found that the situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo constitutes an unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the United States and imposed sanctions, and authorized additional sanctions, to address that threat.

Section 1 of the Order blocks, with certain exceptions, all property and interests in property that are in, or thereafter come within, the United States, or within the possession or control of United States persons, of the persons identified by the President in the Annex to the Order, as well as those persons determined by the Secretary of the Treasury, after consultation with the Secretary of State, to meet any of the criteria set forth in subparagraphs (a)(ii)(A)-(a)(ii)(G) of Section 1 of the Order.

On November 13, 2012, the Director of OFAC exercised the Secretary of the Treasury's authority to designate, pursuant to one or more of the criteria set forth in Section 1 of the Order, the one individual listed below, whose property and interests in property therefore are blocked pursuant to E.O. 13413.

The listing of the blocked individual appears as follows:

1. MAKENGA, Sultani (a.k.a. MAKENGA, Emmanuel Sultani); DOB 25 Dec 1973; POB Rutshuru, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Colonel (individual) [DRCONGO]. Dated: November 13, 2012. Adam J. Szubin, Director, Office of Foreign Assets Control.
