On 18 November, OFAC advised a number of new designations – 5 Iranian and 1 Yemeni nationals, plus 1 new Iranian entity – EMENNET PASARGAD (aka IMANNET PASARGAD). 3 existing Yemen-related and 1 Iran-related designated individuals have seen their details amended. One of those designated is a senior Houthi military officer Saleh Mesfer Alshaer, commander of the Houthi-controlled military logistics support organization, whom Houthi-controlled courts have designated as the “judicial custodian” of assets confiscated from opponents of the Houthis. Alshaer has overseen the Houthis’ seizure of property in Yemen valued at greater than $100 million, using a variety of unlawful tactics, including extortion. The Iranian listings involve 6 Iranian individuals and an Iranian entity for attempting to influence the 2020 US presidential election.
