OFAC SANCTIONS TARGETS 2 BUSINESSMEN AND A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT FOR UNDERMINING THE RULE OF LAW IN LEBANON

On 28 October, OFAC reported that 3 individuals had been added to the SDN List.  Jihad al-Arab, Dany Khoury, and Jamil Sayyed are members of Lebanon’s business and political elite, and are said to have each personally profited from the pervasive corruption and cronyism in Lebanon, enriching themselves at the expense of the Lebanese people and state institutions.
