On 17 July, OFAC advised a number of changes to its SDN List, including 2 Nicaraguan individuals. 2 of 3 entities added to lists are also connected to Nicaragua. In addition to some additions connected to drugs trafficking, OFAC has also made a large number of deletions of individuals and entities previously included because of drugs trafficking or terrorism.
The Nicaraguan listings are of Juan Carlos Ortega Murillo, son of Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega; Jose Jorge Mojica Mejia; and 2 companies which they are said to use in an effort to distribute regime propaganda and launder money – Difuso Comunicaciones SA and Mundo Digital SA.
The drug trafficking additions are said to be of individuals designated for providing support to the Zheng Drug Trafficking Organisation (DTO), and Global United Biotechnology Inc, for being owned or controlled by the Zheng DTO.
