was updated to remove its designation under the Syria program. However, he remains sanctioned under the Iran (Nuclear Proliferation) program instituted by the United Nations.

One editorial note: is it just me, or is it weird that OFSI updates the “Last Updated” date for removed listings? Assuming you remove this from your screening software, what is the purpose of updating this? I guess if you leave these in your system… but why?
