EE.UU congela $32 mil millones del gobierno de Libia.

Treasury Designates Senior Officials of the Government of Libya, Wife and Additional Children of Muammar Qadhafi


WASHINGTON – The U.S. Department of the Treasury took additional steps today to increase pressure on Muammar Qadhafi and the Government of Libya by designating nine individuals pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13566. Those designated today include senior officials of the Government of Libya, as well as the wife and several of the children of Muammar Qadhafi.

President Obama signed E.O. 13566 on February 25, 2011, freezing the assets of the Qadhafi regime following its use of violence against civilians and human rights abuses in Libya and safeguarding the assets of the people of Libya from expropriation by Qadhafi. To date, the United States has frozen more than $32 billion in Government of Libya assets. As a result of today’s action, any assets of the designees subject to U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, and U.S. persons are prohibited from engaging in business with them.
