OFAC ADDS NAMES OF 2 SENIOR OFFICIALS TO NICARAGUA SANCTIONS

On 22 May, OFAC advised that Ivan Adolfo ACOSTA MONTALVAN and Julio Cesar AVILES CASTILLO have been added to OFAC’s SDN List.  They are said to be senior government officials supporting the corrupt Ortega regime.  The US Treasury says that, since April 2018, the Ortega regime has cracked down on political opposition, leading to more than 300 deaths, 2,000 injuries, hundreds of political and civil society actors imprisoned, and over 100,000 refugees fleeing the country.
