    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States imposed sanctions on 14 individuals and entities on Friday for human rights abuses in Iran and supporting Iranian weapons programs, including the head of Iran’s judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani.

    The U.S. Treasury Department said in a statement that Larijani, a close ally of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, is “responsible for ordering, controlling, or otherwise directing, the commission of serious human rights abuses against persons in Iran or Iranian citizens or residents.”

    A Chinese national was sanctioned for acting on behalf of Wuhan Sanjiang Import and Export Co LTD, which is already under sanctions for doing business with an Iranian firm “owned or controlled” by the military.

    Other sanctioned entities included another China-based company, Bochuang Ceramic Corp, and the Iranian firm it sought to supply with a chemical compound used in the transmission of electrical signals.

    the other Larijani must be sanctioned as well.

    Well you must be specific or they may sanction the wrong guy . just like when they mistakenly sanctioned IRIB reporter instead of sardar jaefari because of their name being like each other.
    That was really hilarious . and poor guy had to rely on his coworkers to get his wages .

    That in

    Great move. How does a country get the bank accounts, etc. of a person in order to sanction them, especially from a regime that is antagonistic to America?

    Yep, they went from 1/100 to 2/100. Doubled their rating! Huge change, right?
