Canada imposes additional sanctions on the Maduro regime in Venezuela

April 15, 2019 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

In response to the Maduro regime’s attempts to strengthen its authoritarian rule over Venezuela, Canada today announces its fourth round of sanctions against key figures in the regime, adding to the 70 that have already been sanctioned.

Under the Special Economic Measures Act, the Honourable Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, is today announcing targeted sanctions against 43 individuals responsible for the deteriorating situation in Venezuela. They are high ranking officials of the Maduro regime, regional governors and/or directly implicated in activities undermining democratic institutions.

These measures are being taken in response to the Maduro regime’s anti-democratic actions, particularly relating to the repression and persecution of the members of the interim government, censorship, and excessive use of force against civil society, undermining the independence of the judiciary and other democratic institutions.

Quotes

“During the Lima Group meeting held in Ottawa on February 4, 2019, we called on the international community to take action against the Maduro regime. Today, Canada is taking that action by holding 43 more people accountable for their roles in worsening the situation in Venezuela.”

– Hon. Chrystia Freeland, P.C., M.P., Minister of Foreign Affairs
