US TREASURY TARGETS CORRUPTION NETWORKS LINKED TO TRANSNATIONAL ORGANISED CRIME IN KOSOVO AND EL SALVADOR

On 8 December, the US Treasury announced that OFAC has designated 16 individuals and 24 entities across several countries in Europe and the Western Hemisphere under Executive Order 13818, which builds upon and implements the Global Magnitsky Human Rights Accountability Act, and targets perpetrators of corruption and serious human rights abuse.  Those targeted include a Northern Kosovo-based transnational organised crime (the Zvonko Veselinovic and his organised crime group) and officials linked to organised crime in El Salvador.
