OFAC ADDS 1 INDIVIDUAL AND 1 ENTITY TO IRAN SANCTIONS LISTS

On 3 December, OFAC advised that it had added Mehran BABRI and the SHAHID MEISAMI GROUP to its Iran sanctions lists.  It is said that Shahid Meisami Group and its director are involved in Iran’s chemical weapons research and is subordinate to the Iranian Organization of Defensive Innovation and Research, aka SPND.  The US designated SPND in 2014 in connection with the Iranian regime’s proliferation of WMD or their means of delivery.
