Clar­i­fi­ca­tion

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE head­line to an ar­ti­cle in the Gazette on May 31 “Weapons of mass floor cov­er­ing” was meant to high­light the ab­sur­dity of local Per­sian car­pet dealer Omid Master be­ing un­able to pay a sup­plier.

The ar­ti­cle re­lated to in­ter­fer­ence by the Amer­i­can Govern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tion Of­fice of For­eign As­sets Con­trol (OFAC) which blocked Mr Master’s pay­ment to a sup­plier who bought silks in Iran be­cause of trade sanc­tions.

Mr Master is ob­vi­ously in no way as­so­ci­ated and un­der sus­pi­cion of be­ing in­volved in any il­le­gal or sus­pi­cious be­hav­iour by OFAC or any other au­thor­ity.
