OFAC: NEW GLOBAL MAGNITSKY, IRAN AND SYRIA SANCTIONS DESIGNATIONS

On 7 December, OFAC advised that 14 individuals and 4 entities have been added to the sanctions lists, and the entry for one Iranian, Gholamreza SOLEIMANI, has been amended.  A news release from US Treasury explained actors across 3 countries were being designated in connection with serious human rights abuse and repressive acts targeting innocent civilians, political opponents, and peaceful protestors.
