1+1+1=3: OFSI amends listings under Iran (human rights), Libya & Venezuela regimes

UK regulators corrected 3 listings today – one amended listing under the Venezuela program:

1. AMOROSO, Elvis Eduardo
DOB: 04/08/1963. POB: Caracas, Venezuela a.k.a: HIDROBO AMOROSO, Elvis, Eduardo Nationality: Venezuelan National Identification no: V-7659695 Address: Venezuela. Position: (1) Comptroller General and President of Venezuela’s Moral Council (2) Former Vice President of the National Constituent Assembly Other Information: (UK Sanctions List Ref): VEN0029 Date designated on UK Sanctions List: 31/12/2020 (UK Statement of Reasons): Second Vice President of the Supreme Court of Justice and former President of the Constitutional Chamber. As Vice President of the Supreme Court of Justice (TSJ), there are reasonable grounds to suspect that Mendoza Jover has been involved in repeatedly undermining democracy and the rule of law in Venezuela. The TSJ deprived the legitimate governing body, the National Assembly (AN), of its constitutional powers through several rulings, including through nullifying decisions of the National Assembly Board, nullifying the Democratic Transition Act, and stripping immunity from members of Parliament. Mendoza Jover has sat as a judge for these decisions, and bears responsibility for these grave attacks on democracy. Amoroso has repeatedly undermined democracy in Venezuela, undermined the rule of law and violating the right to freedom of speech. His very appointment as Comptroller General and his role in setting up the ANC amount to a serious undermining of the democratic process, constitution, and democratic institutions in Venezuela. Additionally, while Second Vice President of the ANC, he contributed to the political persecution of Freddy Guevara and Juan Pablo Guanipa, further undermining democracy.
