US TREASURY SANCTIONS CONGOLESE OFFICIALS RESPONSIBLE FOR UNDERMINING DRC ELECTIONS

On 21st March, the US Treasury reported that OFAC had sanctioned 3 senior Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) officials under sanctions that permit listing for actions or policies that undermine democratic processes or institutions in the DRC.  OFAC designated 3 senior National Independent Electoral Commission (CENI) officials: Corneille Yobeluo Nangaa (Nangaa), CENI President; Norbert Basengezi Katintima (Katintima), CENI Vice-President; and Katintima’s son, Marcellin Basengezi Mukolo (Basengezi), a high-level CENI advisor.  As a result, all of the designated persons’ assets within US jurisdiction are blocked, and US persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.
