U.S. Sanctions Target Food Subsidy Scam in Venezuela

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States imposed sanctions on Thursday on 10 people and 13 groups in a food subsidy scheme that lined the pockets of leader Nicolas Maduro, his stepsons and others while ordinary Venezuelans suffer food shortages, the U.S. Treasury said.
The department said Colombian national Alex Nain Saab orchestrated a vast corruption network for food imports and distribution in Venezuela. He profited from overvalued contracts, including the government’s food subsidy program.
