China.org on 19th May reported that the US Treasury has imposed sanctions on an influential Venezuelan political figure, 3 persons related to him and his alleged “corruption network”, including 3 companies and 14 properties in the US.  It designated Diosdado Cabello, the first-vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela, the party of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, and Cabello’s wife and brother.  A businessman, Rafael Alfredo Sarria Diaz, who has been accused of acting on behalf of Cabello, was also on the blacklist.  The Treasury also blocked 3 companies and 14 properties in the US, which were believed to be owned or controlled by Sarria.
