OFAC adds two Pakistanis to Global Terrorists list

December 28, 2016

The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action today to disrupt Lashkar-e Tayyiba’s (LeT) fundraising and support networks by designating two of the group’s senior leaders, Muhammad Sarwar (Sarwar) and Shahid Mahmood (Mahmood), as Specially Designated Global Terrorists (SDGTs) pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13224. Sarwar and Mahmood are being designated for acting for or on behalf of LeT, a terrorist organization based in Pakistan. All property and interests in property of Sarwar and Mahmood subject to U.S. jurisdiction are now blocked, and U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.

For identifying information on the individuals designated today, see OFAC's SDN List update, which also includes changes to its listing for Lashkar-e Tayyiba.
