On November 5, 2019, the US Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control identified five individuals as current officials of the government of Venezuela, pursuant to Executive Order 13884. The action harmonizes some US sanctions efforts with those of Canada and the European Union, and results in the blocking of property and interests in property of the officials, as persons who have acted on behalf of the regime of Nicolas Maduro. The five individuals are an admiral in the Venezuelan navy, a major in the Bolivarian National Guard, the Secretary General of the National Defense Council, a deputy in the Venezuelan National Constituent Assembly, and a senior official in the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service.
