Dec. 20, 2012: OFAC giveth, OFAC taketh away

Two releases today from OFAC:

This morning, 3 individuals were added to the Transnational Criminal Organizations sanctions: 2 Kyrgyz nationals, and 1 has Georgian and Russian citizenship.

This afternoon, OFAC issued a new General License (#6) for the Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferators sanctions program. This license authorizes transactions related to the arrest, detention and sale of the Iranian vessel MV Uppercourt (formerly the MV Iran Bojnoord, IMO 9305207), which is being detained in Quinhuangdao, China. These licenses crop up from time to time; a similar license for transactions related to the arrest and sale of the MV DIanthe was issued recently.
