The U.S. has slapped two more Iranian officials with sanctions to protest human rights violations in Iran.
Commander Mohammadreza Naqdi, the head of the Revolutionary Corps’ Basij Forces, and Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi have been added to the U.S. Treasury blacklist. Any American assets they have will be frozen, and both men are forbidden from carrying out any transactions in the U.S. They are also barred from receiving a visa to travel to the U.S.
Head of Iran’s Basij militia warned that he believes “more complex seditious activities” are on the way against the Islamic Republic.He added: “To reach their aims, they even organized the sedition of 2009 and fed 80 satellites with Persian language programs and used the collaboration of well-known figures to deceive the nation, but they failed.”
