Javad Zarif 2013

July 31, 2019
WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) took action today against the Iranian regime’s Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif (Javad Zarif), pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13876 because Zarif acted or purported to act for or on behalf of, directly or indirectly, the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

All property and interests in property of this individual that are in the United States or in the possession or control of U.S. persons must be blocked and reported to OFAC. OFAC’s regulations generally prohibit all dealings by U.S. persons or within (or transiting) the United States that involve any property or interests in property of blocked or designated persons.

The same day the White House sanctioned Zarif, it quietly renewed sanctions waivers that will let other nations cooperate with Iran on civilian nuclear projects. Renewing the waivers upholds part of the nuclear deal, and is somewhat of a break from the U.S. maximum pressure campaign that has repeatedly jettisoned previous parts of the agreement and levied harsh sanctions against Tehran

[January 31 2019 SPV for payments avoiding SWIFT ]

France, Germany and the United Kingdom created a state company, known as a “special purpose vehicle,” to allow Iran to continue to trade vital goods like medicine and food, according to German media reports. INSTEX will be based in Paris and will be managed by German banking expert Per Fischer, a former manager at Commerzbank. The UK will head the supervisory board. EU foreign ministers were set to meet January 31 2019 in Bucharest, Romania. There was no immediate announcement acknowledging the creation of the trade vehicle. “What is relevant in this case is to see that the EU is doing something despite the position of the US, and in opposition to the US. This is something new.” Esfandyar Batmanghelidj, founder of a Europe-Iran business forum.

[September 25 2018]

The U.K., Germany, France, Russia and China have agreed to establish a special payments system to circumvent U.S. sanctions on Iran stemming from President Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal. The payments channel would be an alternative to SWIFT, the backbone of the global financial system that allows Iran to get paid for oil, pay for its imports and finance its activities abroad.
A Special Purpose/Project Vehicle (SPV) is a legal entity that undertakes a project. All contractual agreements between the various parties are negotiated between themselves and the SPV. An SPV is a commercial company established under the relevant Act of a country through an agreement (also known as memorandum of association) between the shareholders or sponsors. The shareholders agreement sets out the basis on which a company is established, giving such details as its name, ownership structure, management control and corporate matters, authorized share capital and the extent of the liabilities of its members. The creation of a Special Purpose/Project Vehicle (SPV) is a key feature of most PPPs[Public Private Partnerships]. The SPV is a legal entity that undertakes a project. All contractual agreements between the various parties are negotiated between themselves and the SPV. SPVs are also a preferred mode of PPP project implementation in limited or non-recourse situations, where the lenders rely on the project’s cash flow and security over its assets as the only means to repay debts. The next figure shows a simplified PPP structure. However, the actual structure of a PPP depends on the type of partnerships.

Wesley Snipes may be at the April 27 dinner with the president (and 3,000 others) of the White House Correspondents’ Association, affectionately known as the “nerd prom” because it draws a wide cross section of movers and shakers from the worlds of journalism, politics, as well as Hollywood all coming together for one night. The dinner, in the Washington Hilton ballroom, begins around 7:30 (realistically 8). At the lower entrance, on Florida Avenue, the hotel permits non-guests to stand behind a rope line and watch the ticketed guests arrive. It’s crowded, and there’s a lot of screaming, but usually the Hollywood types will walk over to the “civilian” rope line to say hello. Snipes must gain approval to leave home detention.

Caught in the act by her father, according to the resulting police report, he fled—but came back 20 minutes later with his car, in which he proceeded to do donuts across her 80-foot lawn. He joined the Navy, and served more than a year in Afghanistan as an intelligence officer.

Deep learning is an advanced form of machine learning that is already being used in image analysis and human language processing. It attempts to mimic human thought processes like those used by financial-crimes investigators and requires large amounts of data and fine-tuned models. Deep learning will likely start being deployed at scale in the next three to five years for banks to combat money laundering, fraud, and other financial crimes.

Machine learning, real-time data-aggregation platforms using fuzzy logic, rapid automation, and text and voice analytics offer a fundamentally new approach to managing compliance. Even better, they also offer an opportunity to simultaneously cut structural costs and improve the customer experience. As they take up these new tools, banks are shifting financial-crime compliance toward a more forward-looking and sustainable approach, efficient data-aggregation platforms, advanced statistical modeling (such as machine learning-based risk scoring and alert-generation engines), and automation of processes (such as investigator visualization tools)
