home.treasury.gov/news/press-rel…
#US Treasury’s #OFAC took action today targeting #Turkey’s Minister of Justice #AbdulhamitGul and Minister of Interior #SuleymanSoylu, both of whom played leading roles in the organizations responsible for the arrest and detention of #PastorAndrew Brunson.
These officials serve as leaders of #Turkish government organizations responsible for implementing #Turkey’s serious human rights abuses, and are being targeted pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13818.
#PastorAndrew Brunson has reportedly been a victim of unfair and unjust detention by the Government of #Turkey.
He was arrested in #Izmir, #Turkey in October 2016, and with an absence of evidence to support the charges, he was accused of aiding armed terrorist organizations and obtaining confidential government information for political and military espionage.
As a result of these actions, any property, or interest in property, of both #Turkey’s Minister of Justice #AbdulhamitGul and Turkey’s Minister of Interior #SuleymanSoylu within U.S. jurisdiction is blocked.
U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with them.
