OFAC ADDS 3 INDIVIDUALS AND 16 ENTITIES TO VENEZUELA SANCTIONS LIST

On 17th September, OFAC announced that 3 Colombian nationals had been added to its Venezuela sanctions list.  It also added 10 Colombian, 5 Panamanian and 1 Italian companies.  The new sanctions target family members of Alex Saab and Alvaro Pulido, who were themselves designated in July, as well as 16 entities connected to them, for alleged connection to an illegitimate regime to corruptly profit from imports of food aid and distribution in Venezuela.
