OFAC adds a person and an entity to Global Magnitsky program

Today, OFAC added the following person:

AL-KANI, Mohamed (a.k.a. AL-KANI, Mohamed Khalifa Abderrahim Shaqaqi; a.k.a. AL-KANI, Mohammed; a.k.a. AL-KANI, Muhammad Omar), Libya; DOB 03 May 1979; nationality Libya; Gender Male; Passport F86JKFJF (Libya) (individual) [GLOMAG] (Linked To: KANIYAT MILITIA). 

and entity:

KANIYAT MILITIA (f.k.a. “7TH BRIGADE”; a.k.a. “9TH BRIGADE”; a.k.a. “AL-KANI MILITIA”; a.k.a. “AL-KANIYAT”; a.k.a. “KANI BRIGADE”; a.k.a. “KANIAT”; a.k.a. “KANIYAT”; a.k.a. “KANYAT”; f.k.a. “TARHUNA 7TH BRIGADE”; f.k.a. “TARHUNA BRIGADE”), Libya [GLOMAG]. 

to its Global Magnitsky sanctions program. So, is it due to human rights violations or corruption? Based on the affiliation with a militia… my guess is human rights abuses.

We shall see…
