US IMPOSES TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS ON 2 IRANIAN OFFICIALS

On 9 March, a news release from the US State Department advised the designation of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) interrogators Ali Hemmatian and Masoud Safdari for gross violation of human rights.  This is for involvement in gross violations of human rights, namely the torture and/or cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment or punishment (CIDTP) of political prisoners and persons detained during protests in 2019 and 2020 in Iran.  The 2 individuals and their immediate family members are ineligible for entry into the US.

I would be grateful for any modest contribution for my time and ongoing costs of computer, relocation, and (still ongoing) removal costs, I have a page, where contributions start as low as $3, at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/KoIvM842y
