Treasury targets corruption and support networks
On Monday, December 9, International Anti-Corruption Day, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control targeted corrupt actors and their networks across numerous countries in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. Monday’s action, pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, targeted perpetrators of serious human rights abuse and corruption. Two corrupt Venezuelan officials were also designated, pursuant to Venezuela E.O. 13692, in light of their senior leadership roles in the Maduro regime.
