Secretary of Iranian Judiciary’s Human Rights Council Kazem Gharibabadi announced that Islamic Republic of Iran imposed sanctions on 20 American individuals and entities.
Deputy Judiciary Chief for International Affairs made the remarks on Monday, saying that the United States imposed sanctions on any subject it could and then it (United States) turned to the issue of imposing sanctions on individuals and legal entities.
This issue includes two categories, one is the ban on traveling to the United States and the other is freezing the property of individuals in that country, he said, adding, “Generally, 100% of those people who are sanctioned by the United States do not travel to this country and do not have any fund there, so that these sanctions are symbolic.”
There is an issue in the law called “retaliation” and Iran has acted based on this issue and has placed some US individuals and legal entities, including those engaged in the field of human rights, on the sanctions list, Gharibabadi emphasized.
In this regard, the Islamic Republic of Iran put more than 20 American individuals and entities on its sanctions list, he added.
