LogicaCMG Inc. Settles Cuban Assets Control Allegations: LogicaCMG Inc. Lexington, MA
(LogicaCMG), has remitted $220,000.00 to settle allegations of violations of the Cuban Assets Control Regulations by a predecessor corporation, CMG Telecommunications, Inc. (CMG), occurring during 2001. OFAC alleged that CMG procured, assembled, and exported a computer system, as well as provided technical support for the system after export, with knowledge that the goods and services were ultimately destined for Cuba and that such exports to Cuba were prohibited. CMG did not have an OFAC license to engage in these transactions, and CMG did not voluntarily disclose this matter to OFAC. LogicaCMG, Inc. did not perform the acts itself; it is a successor company to CMG as a result of merger and related transactions effective in January 2003.
