Canada imposes sanctions on Maduro and 18 government officers

Canada imposed sanctions on 52 government officers of Venezuela, Sudan and the Russian Federation on charges of human rights abuses and corruption.

The Canadian government renewed on Friday sanctions against Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro, in addition to 18 government authorities for “gross violations of internationally recognized human rights or acts of significant corruption.”
 
Under the new Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act, Canadian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chrystia Freeland, announced targeted sanctions against 52 individuals.

In addition to Maduro, other officials include Executive Vice-President Tareck el Aissami; Adán Chávez and Argenis Chávez, brothers of late President Hugo Chávez, and multiple ex ministers and pro-government deputies.

The sanctions target Venezuelan government authorities who are, in the opinion of the Government of Canada, responsible for, or complicit in, gross violations of internationally recognized human rights or acts of significant corruption, reported the government of Canada in a news release.

Sanctions include an asset freeze in Canada on all listed people, and render listed persons as “inadmissible to Canada under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act.”

These new sanctions are in addition to those imposed last September 22, in accordance with the Special Economic Measures Act (Special Economic Measures (Venezuela) Regulations, SOR/2017-204) on individuals of the Venezuelan government.
