OFAC SANCTIONS IRAN’S MORALITY POLICE AND SENIOR SECURITY OFFICIALS FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST PROTESTERS AND THE DEATH OF MAHSA AMINI

On 22 September, the US Treasury announced that OFAC has designated Iran’s Morality Police for abuse and violence against Iranian women and the violation of the rights of peaceful Iranian protestors.  It is also targeting seven senior leaders of Iran’s security organizations: the Morality Police, Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS), the Army’s Ground Forces, Basij Resistance Forces, and Law Enforcement Forces.  These officials oversee organisations that routinely employ violence to suppress peaceful protesters and members of Iranian civil society, political dissidents, women’s rights activists, and members of the Iranian Baha’i community.
