-

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Treasury and State departments on Wednesday imposed sanctions against two Iranian government officials for human rights abuses in Iran since the June 2009 disputed presidential election.

The Treasury said in a statement that the Tehran Prosecutor General, Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi, and the commander of the Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Basij Forces, Mohammed Reza Naqdi, were added to its Office of Foreign Assets Control blacklist.

The action bans any U.S. persons from transactions with them and seeks to block any assets they may have under U.S. jurisdiction. It also subjects them to State Department visa sanctions.
