OFAC de-lists branches of IIROSA

OFAC has removed the Philippines and Indonesia branch offices of the International Islamic Relief Organisation (IIROSA) from its SDN List, where they were listed as Specially Designated Global Terrorists.  The branches were listed by OFAC in 2006 for facilitating fundraising for al-Qaida and affiliated terrorist groups.  IIROSA is a defendant in the civil 9/11 litigation in the Southern District of New York. The court had ruled that a substantial basis for IIROSA remaining in the litigation was the designations of the Philippines and Indonesia branch offices. Details of the de-listings are here.
