New Law Could Sanction Hezbollah Ministers

According to a US Treasury Department official, Lebanese officials who are part of Hezbollah, the resistance movement, may end up sanctioned under a new US law. The US Hezbollah International FInancing Prevention Act passed last December targets the resistance’s financial institutions, threatening those who finances them.

The Treasury’s Assistant Secretary Daniel Glaser revealed that the new law may be applicable to the resistance’s ministers and MPs. “We don’t make a distinction among Hezbollah members,” he said during a recent interview. Both the Lebanese central bank and US officials stressed that the measure doesn’t target ordinary Lebanese citizens.
