Treasury designates targets in Venezuela and Nicaragua
On Wednesday, the Treasury Department issued press releases announcing it has targeted both the finances of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega's Regime and the Central Bank of Venezuela and one of its directors.
OFAC has designated Laureano Ortega Murillo, the son of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo, as well as Nicaraguan bank Banco Corporativo SA (BanCorp). Those designated in the Venezuela-related action include Banco Central de Venezuela, or the Central Bank of Venezuela, for operating in the financial sector of the Venezuelan economy. Additionally, OFAC designated Iliana Josefa Ruzza Terán, as a current or former official of the Government of Venezuela.
OFAC also updated its General Licenses under the Venezuela-related sanctions, amending current licenses and issuing two new ones that include authorizations to ensure that U.S. persons may continue to engage in and facilitate non-commercial, personal remittances and the provision of humanitarian assistance to the people of Venezuela.
