Do you need to get your name removed from the OFAC SDN list? Doing so is not easy, but it can be done, and you can improve your chances of success by hiring an experienced drug crime defense attorney to guide you through the process. To begin with, let's take a moment to define the problem. The Office of Foreign Assets Control is a department of the U.S. Department of Treasury.
One of its functions is to publish an annual list of people and corporations that are acting on behalf of certain nations, are controlled by such nations or are owned by such nations. In addition, the OFAC list features non-state entities such as terrorist organizations, drug traffickers and others. An individual or entity in the latter category is referred to as a Specially Designated National (SDN), and they are included on the OFAC SDN list.
If you have learned that your name is on the OFAC SDN list, it is vital that you correct the situation and free yourself from the encumbrances imposed by the government in relation to this list. For example, you might find that your assets are being blocked, or you might be subject to other restrictions that make it difficult – or even impossible – to go about your daily life. Fortunately, I may be able to help. Contact the Law Office of Jeff Manciagli now to discuss the situation and learn whether you may be eligible for relief.
I represent individuals whose connection with alleged drug trafficking and similar drug crimes has resulted in their inclusion on the OFAC SDN list, and I know the procedures for requesting removal. Don't underestimate the importance of taking action – violations of the restrictions imposed by the OFAC SDN list can result in fines ranging from $50,000 to $10 million and a prison sentence of between 10 and 30 years.
