In the Matter of the Designation of HARAKAT UL-JIHAD-I-ISLAMI/BANGLADESH (HUJI-B) aka Islami Dawat-e-Kafela (IDEK), aka Harakat ul Jihad e Islami Bangladesh, aka Harkatul Jihad al Islam, aka Harkatul Jihad, aka Harakat ul Jihad al Islami, aka Harkat ul Jihad al Islami, aka Harkat-ul-Jehad-al-Islami, aka Harakat ul Jihad Islami Bangladesh as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist Pursuant to Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224, as Amended

Acting under the authority of and in accordance with section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, as amended by Executive Order 13268 of July 2, 2002, and Executive Order 13284 of January 23, 2003, I hereby determine that the organization known as Harakat ul-Jihad-i-Islami/Bangladesh (HUJI-B), aka Islami Dawat-e-Kafela (IDEK), aka Harakat ul Jihad e Islami Bangladesh, aka Harkatul Jihad al Islam, aka Harkatul Jihad, aka Harakat ul Jihad al Islami, aka Harkat ul Jihad al Islami, aka Harkat-ul-Jehad-al-Islami, aka Harakat ul Jihad Islami Bangladesh has committed, or poses a significant risk of committing, acts of terrorism that threaten the security of U.S. nationals or the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States.

Consistent with the determination in section 10 of Executive Order 13224 that "prior notice to persons determined to be subject to the Order who might have a constitutional presence in the United States would render ineffectual the blocking and other measures authorized in the Order because of the ability to transfer funds instantaneously," I determine that no prior notice needs to be provided to any person subject to this determination who might have a constitutional presence in the United States, because to do so would render ineffectual the measures authorized in the Order.

This notice shall be published in the Federal Register.

Dated: February 15, 2008.
Condoleezza Rice,
Secretary of State, Department of State.
