Sanctions to Venezuela's vice president

The sanction was imposed by the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of Treasury by designating him as a "Specially Designated National" (SDN). See explanation about SDNs


The Club understands that the sanction is only affecting this person, and not any other Venezuelan interest or Venezuelan state-owned assets in the US.
