JORDAN IS ALSO A TARGET FOR SYRIAN SANCTIONS EVADERS

Note well that Daniel Glaser*, the Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing & Financial Crimes, who will shortly be visiting Beirut, to warn about Syrian evasion of international financial sanctions through Lebanon, is also stopping off in Amman. Jordan is apparently another important target of the US Treasury for Syrian evaders.

If the US is briefing the authorities in Amman, they must already have evidence of Syrian sanctions evaders working through Jordanian financial sector. If your clients include companies that trade with Jordanian firms, have investments or businesses there, or Jordanian expats who receive money from home, you should ensure that they are not fronting, or unwittingly facilitating, Syrian transactions.
