OFAC targets Nicaraguan ministry and officials

On Monday, Treasury announced that OFAC had designated the Public Ministry of Nicaragua (Ministerio Publico de Nicaragua) as well as nine officials of the Government of Nicaragua in response to the sham national elections orchestrated by President Daniel Ortega and Vice President Rosario Murillo. This action targets those who are repressing Nicaraguans for exercising their human rights and fundamental freedoms.

Monday’s action, taken pursuant to Executive Order 13851, “Blocking Property of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Nicaragua,” and the Nicaragua Human Rights and Anticorruption Act of 2018 (NHRAA), now known as the Nicaragua Investment Conditionality Act of 2018 (NICA), is intended to highlight the anti-democratic actions that the Ortega regime has undertaken to alter and corrupt the election process in Nicaragua and solidify the power of Ortega, Murillo and their inner circle.

For the names of the nine designated officials and additional identification information on them and the targeted ministry, see the BankersOnline OFAC Update for November 15, 2021.
