[Public Notice: 9946]

In the Matter of the Designation of Sami Bashur Bouras; Also 
Known as Wakrici; Also Known as Khadim; as a Specially Designated 
Global Terrorist pursuant to Section 1(b) of Executive Order 13224, as 

    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 individual known as Sami Bashur 
Bouras, also known as Wakrici, also known as Khadim, 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: March 14, 2017.
Rex W. Tillerson,
Secretary of State.
