For 9 consecutive years, Mujahedin-e Khalq (MEK, a.k.a. MKO and PMOI) terrorist group has been on the Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN).

Following the publication of the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) by U.S. Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) on June 12, terrorist Mujahedin-e Khalq Organization was remained as a SDN, Habilian Foundation reported on Saturday.

 

The Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List is a publication of OFAC which lists individuals and organizations with whom United States persons are prohibited from doing business.

 

In 2003, MKO along with its front organizations, such as National Council of Resistance of Iran were added to the list.

 

Despite the prohibition, some former U.S. officials have been received big bucks from MKO in exchange for their speeches on behalf of the terrorist group, which prompted an investigation by the U.S. Treasury Department to see whether the speaking fees were being paid by MKO.
