This week, the Treasury Department will also announce new sanctions against corrupt individuals and those who are committing human rights abuses or undermining democracy, according to a senior administration official. The official did not provide specifics on who will face sanctions.
The announcement comes ahead of President Joe Biden’s Summit for Democracy later this week. The summit will be a virtual gathering of leaders from government, civil society and the private sector and will focus on combating corruption, defending against authoritarianism and promoting human rights.
