The Treasury Department officially designated the Maoist group, whose war with the government left 70,000 people dead over two decades, a “significant foreign narcotics trafficker” under the US Kingpin Act, which freezes assets tied to those designated. It also named three Shining Path leaders, Victor Quispe Palomino, Jorge Quispe Palomino and Florindo Eleuterio Flores Hala, for sanctions for their roles as traffickers.
