*Statement from the Press Secretary on the Department of Treasury Advisory
on Nicaragua*

Yesterday, the Treasury Department’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network
(FinCEN) published an advisory to warn United States financial institutions
that senior foreign political figures connected to the regime of Nicaraguan
President Daniel Ortega may seek to transfer proceeds from acts of
political corruption into the United States financial system. This
advisory is a strong signal that the Administration of President Donald J.
Trump will not tolerate the Ortega regime’s continued indiscriminate use of
violence, repressive tactics, and corruption, which have worsened the
economic situation of Nicaragua’s people. The United States calls for the
peaceful restoration of democracy and the rule of law in Nicaragua, which
are foundational to long-term economic stability.
