DEPARTMENT OF STATE

[Public Notice 6480]

 
In the Matter of the Review of the Designation of Mujahedin-e 
Khalq Organization (MEK), and All Designated Aliases, as a Foreign 
Terrorist Organization Upon Petition Filed Pursuant to Section 219 of 
the Immigration and Nationality Act, as Amended

    The MEK filed a petition for revocation of its designation as a 
foreign terrorist organization (the ``Petition''). Based upon a review 
of the Administrative Record assembled in this matter, including the 
Petition and associated filings by the MEK, pursuant to Section 
219(a)(4)(B) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, as amended (8 
U.S.C. 1189(a)(4)(B)) (``INA''), and in consultation with the Attorney 
General and the Secretary of the Treasury, I conclude that the 
circumstances that were the basis for the 2003 re-designation of the 
aforementioned organization as a

[[Page 1274]]

foreign terrorist organization have not changed in such a manner as to 
warrant revocation of the designation and that the national security of 
the United States does not warrant a revocation.
    Therefore, I hereby determine that the designation of the 
aforementioned organization as a foreign terrorist organization, 
pursuant to Section 219 of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1189), shall be 
maintained.
    This determination shall be published in the Federal Register.

    Dated: January 7, 2009.
Condoleezza Rice,
Secretary of State, Department of State.
