Qualifying Case Deposits in the USVSST Fund

The Justice for United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Act and the United States Victims of State Sponsored Terrorism Fund Clarification Act specify that certain case proceeds and penalties forfeited or paid to the United States must be deposited or transferred to the USVSST Fund. For proceeds or penalties to qualify for deposit in the USVSST Fund, the underlying matter must arise from a violation of any license, order, regulation, or prohibition issued under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) or the Trading with the Enemy Act (TWEA), or any related conspiracy, scheme, or other Federal offense arising from the actions of, or doing business with or acting on behalf of, a state sponsor of terrorism.

For criminal matters, all funds and the net proceeds from the sale of property from these violations must be deposited in the USVSST Fund. For civil matters, effective November 21, 2019, the enactment date of the Clarification Act, seventy-five percent of all funds, and seventy-five percent of the net proceeds from the sale of property, must be deposited into the USVSST Fund. From December 18, 2015 until November 20, 2019 (the date of the Clarification Act), for civil matters, one-half of all funds, and one-half of the net proceeds qualified for deposit into the USVSST Fund.

Listed below are cases or matters with publicly available information where some or all of the proceeds qualified for deposit into the USVSST Fund. Note that for matters with deposits in multiple fiscal years, the matter is listed in only the first fiscal year with a deposit.

In addition, the USVSST Fund has identified, and currently tracks, other cases and matters that may lead to future deposits. The USVSST Fund will update this list periodically after additional funds are deposited into the USVSST Fund. The USVSST Fund will identify the total amount of deposits to be made available for the next round of payments closer to the time of distribution.
