Justice Announces Arrest of United States Citizen for Assisting North Korea in Evading Sanctions
(Source: Justice, 2 Dec 2019.) [Excerpt.]
The Department of Justice announced the unsealing of a criminal complaint charging Virgil Griffith, a United States citizen, with violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) by traveling to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (“DPRK” or “North Korea”) in order deliver a presentation and technical advice on using cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to evade sanctions. Griffith was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport Thursday, Nov. 28, 2019 and will be presented in federal court today.
“Despite receiving warnings not to go, Griffith allegedly traveled to one of the United States’ foremost adversaries, North Korea, where he taught his audience how to use blockchain technology to evade sanctions,” said Assistant Attorney General for National Security John C. Demers. “By this complaint, we begin the process of seeking justice for such conduct.”  … 


Virgil Griffith, 36, is a resident of Singapore and citizen of the United States. Griffith is charged with conspiring to violate the IEEPA, which carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison. …

Defense News: “India Watching US for Sanctions on Turkey”

Defense News, 30 Nov 2019.) [Excerpts.]

U.S. President Donald Trump has held back enacting mandatory sanctions for NATO ally Turkey’s acquisition of the Russian S-400 missile defense system, and the world is watching – especially India, which is counting on America’s lenience.
Despite passage of the 2017 Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act, which could apply sanctions to individuals and organizations that engage or do business with Moscow’s intelligence or defense sectors, America’s partner, India, placed an $800 million down payment this month for an S-400 system. India plans to complete the purchase by 2025. …
Members of Congress in July said they expected CAATSA sanctions to be applied after Turkey accepted the S-400, but Trump has been slow to act and has expressed sympathy for Turkey. There was no action from Trump, even as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan continued to flout Congress’ objections to the deal last week. …

DW: “China Slaps First Sanctions on US over Hong Kong Bill”

Deutsche Welle, 2 Dec 2019.) [Excerpts.]

US Navy visits to Hong Kong have been suspended. But sanctions on several pro-democracy US NGOs are more symbolic than substantive after China had threatened strong countermeasures.
China will impose sanctions on US-based pro-democracy and human rights groups in response to a recent US law supporting protesters in Hong Kong. …
China had vowed to take strong countermeasures after US President Donald Trump late last month signed into law two Hong Kong related bills that were overwhelming passed by Congress.
One piece of legislation requires the State Department to certify at least annually that Hong Kong’s autonomy is not compromised. It also allows the US to impose sanctions for human rights abuses. 
A second bill banned the export of crowd-control munitions, such as teargas, pepper spray, rubber bullets and stun guns, to Hong Kong security forces. …

SCMP: “US Hi-Tech Goods Shipped Through Hong Kong to Face Closer Scrutiny Under New Democracy Legislation”

South China Morning Post, 2 Dec 2019.) [Excerpts.]

The United States’ latest piece of legislation on 
Hong Kong will mean closer scrutiny of the trade in “dual-use” technologies to ensure the city is not used as a gateway for shipping regulated hi-tech American products to mainland China.
The move comes after US President Donald Trump on Wednesday signed into law the 
, which includes a reference to the sale of goods that have both military and commercial applications.
Under the legislation, Washington has the power to suspend Hong Kong’s special trading status if it is deemed to have lost a significant degree of autonomy from mainland China, as promised under the “one country, two systems” framework. As a result, the city will be subject to an annual assessment of the enforcement of export control laws that monitor and limit the sale of potentially sensitive products overseas. …

ST&R: “Process that May Lead to Broad Trade Sanctions on Foreign ICTS under Consideration”

Pursuant to a May 15 executive order aimed at securing the U.S. information and communications technology and services supply chain, the Department of Commerce has issued a proposed rule laying out the process and procedures that the agency intends to use to identify, assess, and address certain ICTS transactions that pose an undue risk to critical infrastructure or the digital economy in the U.S., or an unacceptable risk to U.S. national security or the safety of U.S. persons. Interested parties may submit input on this proposal by Dec. 27.
The EO authorizes the DOC to prohibit imports and other transactions that involve ICTS designed, developed, manufactured, or supplied by persons owned by, controlled by, or subject to the jurisdiction or direction of a foreign adversary and:
– pose an undue risk of sabotage to or subversion of ICTS in the U.S.;
– pose an undue risk of catastrophic effects on the security or resiliency of U.S. critical infrastructure or the digital economy of the U.S.; or
– otherwise pose an unacceptable risk to U.S. national security.
Foreign adversaries are defined in the EO as any foreign government or non-government entity engaged in a long-term pattern or serious instances of conduct significantly adverse to U.S. national security or to the security and safety of U.S. persons. 
The DOC states in a press release that it intends to adopt a case-by-case, fact-specific approach to determine which transactions must be prohibited, or which can be mitigated, according to the requirements of the EO. Among other things, the DOC will use assessments developed by the Department of Homeland Security and the Director of National Intelligence pursuant to the EO to inform its evaluation of ICTS transactions.
Under the proposed rule, if the DOC makes a preliminary determination in consultation with other federal agencies to prohibit or mitigate a transaction, it will provide notice to the parties engaged in the transaction. Notified parties will have an opportunity to submit a position, which may include proposed measures for mitigation, prior to any final DOC determination.
The DOC will then provide an unclassified written final determination to the parties that explains, to the extent possible, how the decision is consistent with the terms of the EO. A summary of the final determination will also be made publicly available, as appropriate. A more expedited process may be pursued in instances where the risk of public harm or national security interests so require it.
While the DOC will accept input on all aspects of the proposal, it indicates that the determination of a “foreign adversary” is a matter of executive branch discretion that will be made by the DOC in consultation with other relevant U.S. government agencies.

Lawfare: “Assessing the Trump Administration’s Proposed Changes to the Small-Arms Export Regime”
The Lawfare Institute, 2 Dec 2019.) [Excerpts.]
The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal 2020 is currently in House-Senate Conference Committee reconciliation negotiations. Among the several differences between the House and Senate versions is an amendment that could decide whether a Trump administration proposal to loosen export controls on firearms goes into effect. On Nov. 21, the Trump administration gave formal notification to Congress of the proposed rule changes, which could go into effect as early as Dec. 20 if Congress does not block the initiative within 30 days.
The United States exports firearms and related technology on a massive scale. During fiscal 2013 to 2017, the State Department reviewed approximately 69,000 commercial export license applications for firearms, artillery and ammunition reported at a value of $7.5 billion. Roughly two-thirds of these applications were for firearms, mostly nonautomatic and semiautomatic guns.
The Trump administration’s proposal would transfer control over the export of firearms and related technology from the State Department to the Commerce Department. The differences between the current and proposed regimes-which are discussed below-could have significant implications for the global trade in small arms, particularly in conflicts across Latin America and the Middle East. …

N. Turner: “Last Week’s Sanctions Top 5”


Medium, 2 Dec 2019.) [Excerpts.] 

* Author: Nicholas Turner, Esq., Clifford Chance, Hong Kong, nicholas.turner@cliffordchance.com.
Donald Trump signed the Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act, which, among other things, authorizes targeted sanctions against persons involved in human rights abuses in Hong Kong. According to White House statement, some of the Act’s provisions “would interfere with the exercise of the President’s constitutional authority to state the foreign policy of the United States.” (In other words, we probably shouldn’t expect aggressive use of the sanctions.) (See my comments on the Act from last week.)
(2) The US Department of Justice (DOJ), announced the arrest of Virgil Griffith, an American citizen and cryptocurrency expert, on charges of violating the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA). According to a DOJ news release, Griffith, who lives in Singapore, traveled to North Korea in April 2019 to speak at the Pyongyang Blockchain and Cryptocurrency Conference.
(3) As mentioned last week, the US Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) announced a USD 466,912 settlement with Apple Inc. for violations of the Foreign Narcotics Kingpin Sanctions Regulations. According to an OFAC settlement notice, Apple hosted an app and engaged in numerous financial transactions with a Slovenian company added to the List of Specially Designated Nationals (SDNs) in February 2015. The breaches were due, in part, to a deficiency in Apple’s sanctions name screening software, according to the notice.
(4) OFAC added Cuba-based Corporacion Panamericana S.A. to the SDN List pursuant to Executive Order 13850 for acting on behalf of Cubametales, a state-run oil import and export company. According to OFAC, Cubametales relied on Corporacion Panamericana as a stand-in for various transactions after OFAC designated Cubametales as an SDN in July 2019.
What do a Slovenian app developer and a Cuban oil importer have in common? Both are accused of arranging for non-sanctioned intermediaries to do business for them after being added to the SDN List. …
According to the DOJ, Virgil Griffith traveled to North Korea “in order deliver a presentation and technical advice on using cryptocurrency and blockchain technology to evade sanctions.” What about IEEPA’s exception for informational materials, you might ask? According to the DOJ’s complaint, Griffith’s activities went beyond presenting information and included “formulating plans to facilitate the exchange of cryptocurrency between” North Korea and South Korea. Apparently, he entered North Korea surreptitiously after the State Department denied him permission to travel to the conference.
For the history buffs, there may be parallels between Griffith’s case and the case against US citizens who traveled to Iraq to act as human shields before the US-led invasion in 2003. OFAC charged them with violating the Iraqi Sanctions Regulations at the time.  …

(Source: Editor)

* Laurence Sterne
(24 Nov 1713 – 18 Mar 1768; was an Irish novelist and an Anglican clergyman. Among his many writings, the novels The Life and Opinions of Tristram Shandy, Gentleman and A Sentimental Journey Through France and Italy are most famous. The Russian writer Viktor Shklovsky regarded Tristram Shandy as the archetypal, quintessential novel, of which all other novels are mere subsets, stating, “Tristram Shandy is the most typical novel of world literature.”)
  – “People who overly take care of their health are like misers. They hoard up a treasure which they never enjoy.”
* Andrew Carnegie
(25 Nov 1835 – 11 Aug 1919; was a Scottish-American industrialist, business magnate, and philanthropist. Carnegie led the expansion of the American steel industry in the late 19th century and became one of the richest Americans in history. During the last 18 years of his life, he gave away $350 million (over $65 billion in 2019 dollars) to charities, foundations, and universities — almost 90 percent of his fortune.)
  – “People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.”
  – “There is little success where there is little laughter.”
