ABSTRACT

Terrorist Assets Report: Year-End Update 1994 Annual Report to the Congress on Assets in the United States Belonging to Terrorist Countries or International Terrorist Organizations   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Summary: "Nearly $3.5 billion dollars in assets of the seven state sponsors of international terrorism are located within U.S. jurisdiction. Of that total, over $2.8 billion are blocked by the U.S. Treasury Department pursuant to economic sanctions imposed by the United States against five of the terrorist countries. The total of terrorist country assets has increased by $280.5 million since the August 1994 report. This increase in large part because bank and other liabilities to Syria increased by $188 million, and in part because assets blocked by the Treasury grew by nearly $92.5 million. In addition, nearly $882,000 in currency and other assets was seized by the Customs Service over a five year period in cases that involved persons believed to be connected to international terrorist organizations. [...] On January 23, 1995, President Clinton signed Executive Order 12947, blocking assets in the United States of terrorist organizations that threaten to disrupt the Middle East peace process, and prohibiting financial transactions with those groups. Future reports will include treatment of the assets blocked as a result of the new Executive order."
