Australia imposes sanctions against Iranian citizens, organisations

    REGION  20 March 2023 - 11:14

    The Australian Government is imposing Magnitsky-style targeted financial sanctions and travel bans on a further 14 individuals and targeted financial sanctions on 14 Iranian entities responsible for egregious human rights abuses and violations in Iran.

    Among those subject to Magnitsky-style human rights sanctions are four members of the Morality Police who were responsible for the arrest, detention and ill-treatment of Mahsa "Jina" Amini, according to the report posted on the website of the Australian foreign minister.

    Sanctioned targets also include senior law enforcement, political and military figures, including within the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, involved in the violent crackdown on protests following the death of Ms Amini and the continued oppression of the people of Iran.

    Australia is also joining partners to impose additional targeted financial sanctions and travel bans on 13 Iranian individuals and targeted financial sanctions on one entity involved in the production and supply of drones to Russia.

    Iranian-made drones have been used by Russia to target Ukrainian civilians and civilian infrastructure.

    This listing demonstrates that there will be consequences for those who provide material support to Russia.

    Australia stands with the people of Iran and with the people of Ukraine.
