A few Malaysian entities, individuals on US State Department’s sanctions list


A few Malaysian individuals and entities have appeared on the US State Department’s list of sanctioned entities and individuals believed to “engage in proliferation activities“.

You can check out the list here. Some of them date several years ago, and the sanctions have expired or have been lifted; a few remain active.

According to the State Department, “announcements of such sanctions determinations are printed in the Federal Register and can be accessed through the Government Printing Office web page.”

Here is one such entry in the US Federal Gazette in July 2016 that mentions a few Malaysian entities and it states:

A determination has been made that a number of foreign persons have engaged in activities that warrant the imposition of measures pursuant to Section 3 of the Iran, North Korea, and Syria Nonproliferation Act.

The Act provides for penalties on foreign entities and individuals for the transfer to or acquisition from Iran since January 1, 1999; the transfer to or acquisition from Syria since January 1, 2005; or the transfer to or acquisition from North Korea since January 1, 2006, of goods, services, or technology controlled under multilateral control lists (Missile Technology Control Regime, Australia Group, Chemical Weapons Convention, Nuclear Suppliers Group, Wassenaar Arrangement) or otherwise having the potential to make a material contribution to the development of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) or cruise or ballistic missile systems.

Have a look and see what you make of it.

The Employees Provident Fund (EPF) recorded a realised loss of RM203.18 million when it sold off its shares in Felda Global Ventures (FGV) last August.

Is this the reason for the low dividend pay out to the EPF holders?


By the way, I guess many have yet to realise that most local banks no longer pay you interest for your money in your savings account if its monthly average is less than RM1000. Wonder why CAP never investigate. Like this poor people will never get their meagre savings to earn interest.


Anil, your Readers’ alerts is still not working!
Is it on sanction list?


I hope MO1 in the list but looks like MO1 really can sweet talk anyone with his saliva.

Trump said MO1 his favourite PM.

Many had hoped that Sivaji the Boss could give Jibby ‘The Office’ treatment as in the movie. But Rajni is just an actor hoping to get good movie deal for Kabali sequel (tax free?) in Bolehland.

Kabali sequel will pit the gangsters against J Revolusi or Gerak Khas of Malaysia, with blessing from PDRM and Finas, fully funded by Red Granite of Jibby’s son in law production company?


Trump has also identified Malaysia as one of the top 3 Asian nations (besides China and Indonesia) which US has trade deficits. Looks like Gerakan Mah will have harder time exporting our oil Palm products to USA.
