Iran’s parliament approved the outlines of a bill to impose travel and financial restrictions on 26 U.S. officials, whom it accuses of being involved in “human rights violations,” Mehr reported.

The bill would also call for the officials to be tried on charges of “crimes against humanity” and “human rights abuses,” Kazem Jalali, the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee spokesman said, according to a report published yesterday by the state-run news agency, which didn’t specify the names.

Iran’s prosecutor general would submit the names and relevant documents to the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, Mehr said. Iran’s Foreign Ministry will be in charge of following up on the implementation of the proceedings at international forums, it said.
