US TREASURY SANCTIONS 17 INDIVIDUALS FOR THEIR ROLES IN THE KILLING OF JAMAL KHASHOGGI

On 26 February, the US Treasury advised that OFAC has designated Saud al-Qahtani, his subordinate Maher Mutreb, Saudi Consul General Mohammed Alotaibi, and 14 other members of an operations team for having a role in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.   These individuals are designated pursuant to Executive Order 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, to target perpetrators of serious human rights abuse and corruption.  Also designated is the Saudi RAPID INTERVENTION FORCE (aka FIRQAT EL-NEMR).
