Taking Actions against Network of Houthi Financial Facilitator

The United States is taking action today against four individuals, four entities, and two vessels that have enabled the illicit transportation of commodities on behalf of financial networks supporting terrorism, including for the network of U.S. designated Houthi financial facilitator, Sa’id al-Jamal.  We are sanctioning shipping and financial facilitators, including two vessel captains, several vessel managers and owners, and a company involved in forging shipping documents, as well as identifying two vessels as blocked property.

Houthi financial facilitator Sa’id al-Jamal continues to leverage an expansive support network to facilitate the illicit sale of commodities, including hiding the origin of cargo, forging shipping documents, and providing services to sanctioned vessels.  The United States will continue to impose costs on those who seek to facilitate these illicit activities.

The Department of the Treasury actions today were taken pursuant to counterterrorism authority Executive Order 13224.  For more information on today’s action, see Treasury’s press release.
