    Additionally, except to the extent otherwise provided by law or unless licensed or otherwise authorized by OFAC, the following are prohibited: (1) Any transaction by a U.S. person or within the United States that evades or avoids, has the purpose of evading or avoiding, or attempts to violate any of the prohibitions set forth in the Order or the Regulations; and (2) any conspiracy formed to violate any of the prohibitions in the Order or the Regulations.

    The President determined in section 10 of the Order that, because of the ability to transfer funds or other assets instantaneously, prior notice to persons designated pursuant to the Order, who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, of measures to be taken pursuant to the Order would render these measures ineffectual. Therefore, the President determined that there need be no prior notice of such a determination. Accordingly, in making these determinations pursuant to the Order, I also find that no prior notice should be afforded to the persons named above because to do so would provide an opportunity to evade the measures authorized by the Order and, consequently, render those measures ineffectual.
