As a result of today's action, all properties in the US or in the possession or control of US persons in which HKHS, RMX, Sattar or Khairullah have an interest is blocked and US persons are prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.
The Treasury said Sattar is a co-owner and operator of HKHS.
Both have co-owned and jointly operated HKHS throughout Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Dubai and managed an HKHS branch in the Afghanistan-Pakistan border region.
Sattar founded HKHS and customers chose to use HKHS because of Sattar's and Khairullah's well-known names.
Khairullah was a hawala operator for Taliban senior leadership and provided financial aid to the group and HKHS was a preferred method for Taliban to transfer money to their commanders in Afghanistan.
