Order Denying Export Privileges

A. Denial of Export Privileges of Zhan Gao On March 5, 2004, in the U.S. District Court in the Eastern District of Virginia, Zhan Gao (‘‘Gao’’) was convicted of two felonies, including one violation of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 17011706 (2000)) (‘‘IEEPA’’) and one violation of the Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. 7206 (2000)). As to the IEEPA count, Gao was found guilty of knowingly and willfully having exported and caused to be exported from the United States to the Peoples Republic of China, 80 microprocessors, which were Commerce Control List items, without obtaining the required license from the Department of Commerce. These items were controlled for national security reasons for export to China and valued at approximately $500,000. Gao was sentenced to seven months in prison. Section 11(h) of the Export Administration Act of 1979, as amended (currently codified at 50 U.S.C. app. §§ 24912420 (2000)) (‘‘Act’’) 1 and

1 From August 21, 1994 through November 12, 2000, the Act was in lapse. During that period, the President, through Executive Order 12924, which

Section 766.25 of the Export Administration Regulations 2 (‘‘Regulations’’) provide, in pertinent part, that ‘‘[t]he Director of Exporter Services, in consultation with the Director of the Office of Export Enforcement, may deny export privileges of any person who has been convicted of a violation of * * * IEEPA,’’ for a period not to exceed 10 years from the date of conviction. 15 CFR 766.25(a) and (d). In addition, Section 750.8 of the Regulations states that BISs Office of Exporter Services may revoke any BIS licenses previously issued in which the person had an interest in at the time of her conviction. I have received notice of Gaos conviction for violating the IEEPA, and have provided notice and an opportunity for Gao to make a written submission to the Bureau of Industry and Security as provided in Section 766.25 of the Regulations. Having

had been extended by successive Presidential

Notices, the last of which was August 3, 2000 (3 CFR, 2000 Comp. 397 (2001)), continued the Regulations in effect under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701

1706 (2000)) (‘‘IEEPA’’). On November 13, 2000, the

Act was reauthorized and it remained in effect through August 20, 2001. Since August 21, 2001, the Act has been in lapse and the President, through Executive Order 13222 of August 17, 2001 (3 CFR,

2001 Comp. 783 (2002)), as extended by the Notice

of August 2, 2005 (70 FR 45273, August 5, 2005), has continued the Regulations in effect under the IEEPA. 2 The Regulations are currently codified at 15 CFR parts 730774 (2005).
