The European Union has published the names of the 29 Iranian officials under sanctions for “violations of human rights including acts such as torture and carrying out executions ordered through vague charges and unfair trials.”
The 29 individuals are banned from entering EU countries, and all their assets in European countries are to be frozen.
The list contains the names of Islamic Republic judiciary officials as well as security forces, Revolutionary Guards and Basij senior members and commanders. Iran’s Intelligence Minister Heydar Moslehi and Culture Minister Mohammad Hosseiny are also on the list.
Previously, the EU published another list of 32 sanctioned top Islamic Republic officials.
While the international community accused Iran of “violating human rights,” Iran dismisses such reactions as meddling in the internal affairs of the country.
