OFAC ADDS 3 INDIVIDUALS AND THE NATIONAL POLICE TO NICARAGUA SANCTIONS LISTS, PLUS 2 GENERAL LICENSES AND FAQ ISSUED

On 5 March, OFAC announced that it has added 3 individuals and the NICARAGUAN NATIONAL POLICE (aka POLICIA NACIONAL DE NICARAGUA or NNP) to its sanctions lists.  At the same time, 2 new General Licenses have been issued covering Official Business of the United States Government and Authorizing the Wind Down of Transactions Involving the Nicaraguan National Police.  2 new FAQ have also been issued.  The reason for the listings are alleged serious human rights abuses by the NNP, and the 3 individuals are NNP commissioners.
