OFAC adds a dozen new designations
On Friday, OFAC imposed sanctions on eleven individuals for undermining Hong Kong’s autonomy and restricting the freedom of expression or assembly of the citizens of Hong Kong. These actions were taken in accordance with Executive Order 13936, “The President’s Executive Order on Hong Kong Normalization,” which President Trump issued on July 14, 2020.
OFAC also took action against Bi Sidi Souleymane, also known as Sidiki Abbas. Souleymane leads the Central African Republic (CAR)-based militia group Return, Reclamation, Rehabilitation (3R). OFAC's action was coordinated with an action by the U.N. Security Council.
