The United States is sanctioning more than two dozen individuals and entities connected to Iran’s “violent suppression” of protests in the wake of Mahsa Amini’s death last year in the custody of Iran’s morality police, the U.S. Treasury Department said on September 15.

The sanctions target 29 people and groups, including 18 key members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) and Iran’s Law Enforcement Forces (LEF), as well as the head of Iran’s Prisons Organizations, the department said.

They also target officials linked to Iran’s Internet blockade as well as several media outlets.

Meanwhile, the European Union has threatened to tighten sanctions on the Iranian government.

All available options are being considered to address issues related to the human rights situation in the country, EU foreign affairs chief Josep Borrell said on September 15 on behalf of member states.

The EU and its 27 members strongly reiterated their support for the fundamental rights of Iranian women and men.

All those arbitrarily detained should be released immediately, including EU citizens and those with dual nationality, he said.
