U.S. slaps sanctions on firms moving Venezuelan oil to Cuba

U.S. slaps sanctions on firms moving Venezuelan oil to CubaThe U.S. Treasury Department on Tuesday imposed sanctions on four maritime firms and vessels transporting Venezuelan oil to Cuba, amid an acute fuel scarcity in the island that is forcing people to line up for gasoline and public transport. Despite tough U.S. measures against Venezuela’s state-owned oil company PDVSA in January, Cuba’s state-run oil import and export company Cubametales and other Cuba-based entities “have continued to circumvent sanctions by receiving oil shipments from Venezuela,” the Treasury said in a statement.

U.S. slaps record fine on Michigan State University over Nassar abuse scandalThe U.S. Department of Education has imposed a record $ 4.5 million fine on Michigan State University for what it called a failure to protect students from sexual abuse and ordered the university to make changes. The Education Department had launched two separate investigations into the university after the former sports doctor for the school and USA Gymnastics, Larry Nassar, was accused of sexual abuse by more than 350 women. Nassar was sentenced uk.reuters.com/article/uk-gymnastics-usa-nassar-fallout/sexual-abuse-scandal-weighs-on-us-gymnastics-centres-idUKKBN1FL6L8 in two different trials to 300 years in prison for having abused young female gymnasts.

US slaps Hezbollah financier with prison, $  50 mn fineA Lebanese businessman designated by US authorities as an important financial supporter of Hezbollah was sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to forfeit $ 50 million, the Justice Department said Thursday. Kassim Tajideen, 63, pleaded guilty in December to one count of conspiracy to launder money as part of a scheme to evade US sanctions. “His sentencing and the $ 50 million forfeiture in this case are just the latest public examples of the Department of Justice’s ongoing efforts to disrupt and dismantle Hezbollah and its support networks,” said Assistant Attorney General Brian Benczkowski.

Trump says 'let's make Iran great again' as he slaps new sanctions on Tehran

Trump says 'let's make Iran great again' as he slaps new sanctions on TehranDonald Trump has said he wants to “make Iran great again” as he announced additional sanctions on Tehran.The US president made the announcement on Sunday, as he left for his retreat at Camp David to discuss options concerning the Middle Eastern country.Tensions in the region are high after the US accused Tehran of attacking oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman and shooting down an unmanned drone.“We are moving forward with additional sanctions on Iran,” Mr Trump told reporters. “They’re going on slowly and in some cases pretty rapidly.”The president stressed military action was still a possibility, after he called off a planned strike, but said he wanted the response to be “proportionate”.Mr Trump said it was important to “start over on Iran” and added a riff on his regularly-repeated slogan: “Let’s make Iran great again.”He went on to say that hopefully Tehran would be “smart” about the conflict and “cares about its people”, adding that he had a number of Iranian friends who were “high quality people”.Mr Trump also noted that while his security adviser, John Bolton, was “definitely a hawk”, he intended to listen to every perspective on dealing with the problem.In an interview with NBC’s Meet the Press, the president said a war with Iran would cause “obliteration like you’ve never seen before”, but said he had no desire for armed conflict.“I’m not looking for war, and if there is, it’ll be obliteration like you’ve never seen before. But I’m not looking to do that,” Mr Trump said.The comment was reminiscent of his "fire and fury" rhetoric directed at North Korea, which softened once he and Kim Jong-un got to the negotiating table.It came as Iran reportedly executed a former employee of its defence ministry on charges of spying for the CIA.Documents and spying equipment were found at Jalal Hajizavar’s home, IRIB News reported.Mr Hajizavar, who had left his position as an aerospace contract employee for the ministry nine years prior, was convicted by a military court and sentenced to death.Tensions between the US and Iran have escalated after Mr Trump pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.Mr Trump claimed the US was “cocked and loaded to retaliate” after Tehran shot down a US drone but decided against a strike when he was informed as many as 150 people could be killed.

US slaps new sanctions on Venezuela regime as Russia ups support

US slaps new sanctions on Venezuela regime as Russia ups supportThe United States and Russia clashed Friday over how to assist crisis-wracked Venezuela, with Moscow pledging new relief channeled through President Nicolas Maduro and Washington slapping sanctions over the blocking of US aid it tried to push through the border. A day after Russia and China vetoed a US and European resolution at the UN Security Council that called for unimpeded aid deliveries, Washington said it was targeting six Venezuelan military officers for stopping last weekend’s US-led convoy. Four people were killed in the melee as Maduro’s forces prevented the 178 metric tonnes of rice, beans and other food from crossing into the country from Colombia.
