DEPARTMENT OF STATE


[Public Notice 4230]


 
Determination Pursuant to Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 
Relating to the Moroccan Islamic Combatant Group (GICM)


    Acting under the authority of Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 
of September 23, 2001, and in consultation with the Secretary of the 
Treasury and the Attorney General, I hereby determine that the Moroccan 
Islamic Combatant Group (GICM) 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 need 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: December 5, 2002.

Colin L. Powell,
Secretary of State, Department of State.
