UK, US, EU Place Sanctions On Iran's IRGC

The IRGC met by protests

Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) was met with sanctions by the US, UK and European Union on Monday.

The sanctions summed up new restrictions on Iran for alleged human rights violations.

British Foreign Secretary James Cleverly announced a travel ban and assets freeze on four individuals and the IRGC “in its entirety.”

Cleverly said; “The Iranian regime is responsible for the brutal repression of the Iranian people and for exporting bloodshed around the world.

“That’s why we have more than 300 sanctions in place on Iran, including on the IRGC in its entirety.”

Cleverly said the ban was made in coordination with the EU and the United States, which have both ratcheted up their curbs on Iran in recent months after a hardline crackdown.

The US rolled out its own set of sanctions against four top officials in the IRGC.

Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Brian Nelson said; “The Iranian people deserve freedom of expression without the threat of violent retaliation and censorship from those in power.

“Along with our key allies and partners, such as the United Kingdom, the United States will continue to take action against those responsible for the regime’s violent repression and censorship."
