OFAC DISCLOSES ITS AUTHORITIES FOR DERIPASKA SANCTIONS



The Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC, has listed all the unclassified and non-privileged sources of information that it relied upon, first to designate OLEG DERIPASKA, and then in support of its denial of the Plaintiff's Petition for Delisting, and we have placed the lists at the end of this article.

 This document gives the reader a rare look inside the actual OFAC work product, as well as serving as a guide for which media sources the agency considers authoritative and reliable, when conducting investigations. As you can see, the list is extensive, and is obviously the result of a broad-based search online and elsewhere. Readers who conduct enhanced due dliligence investigations should take note of the media sources cited.

Of course, the classified documents, which most likely were the source of the most damning information, remain unavailable and exempt from discovery and disclosure. You can expect Deripaska's attorneys to have a lot to say about their inability to confront that evidence.
