[Public Notice 4522]

Determination Pursuant to Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 
Relating to the Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist)

    Acting under the authority of section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224 
of September 23, 2001, as amended by Executive Order 13286 of July 2, 
2002, and Executive Order 13284 of January 23, 2003, and in 
consultation with the Secretary of the Treasury, the Attorney General, 
and the Secretary of Homeland Security, I hereby determine that the 
Communist Party of Nepal (Maoist), also known as the United 
Revolutionary People's Council, also known as the People's Liberation 
Army of Nepal, also known as CPN(M), 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: October 23, 2003.
Richard L. Armitage,
Deputy Secretary of State, Department of State.
