VENEZUELAN TYCOON Samark Lopez says he will pursue all legal, administrative and judicial remedies to fight American sanctions against him.
In February, the United States Treasury Department named Lopez the “primary frontman” for Venezuelan vice-president Tareck El Aissami, who the US accuses of running a drug-trafficking and money-laundering network that has reaped him billions of dollars.
The sanction against the two men blocked more than a dozen properties, including some in Miami, worth tens of millions of dollars.
According to investigations by the United States Department of the Treasury, Lopez was responsible for opening accounts in the United States and creating ghost companies in Panama, Barbados and Venezuela, among others, in order to send and receive money to and from the Venezuelan vice-president.
