OFAC SANCTIONS BELARUS OFFICIALS

On 2 October, OFAC advised that 8 individuals have been added to its sanctions lists.  They are being designated for their roles in the fraudulent Belarus presidential election or the subsequent violent crackdown on peaceful protesters.  OFAC has previously sanctioned 16 Belarusian officials pursuant to E.O. 13405 for their activities in connection with the previous fraudulent 2006 and 2010 elections.
