The sanctions list includes organizations controlled by Ali Khamenei
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday announced the imposition of sanctions on two organizations controlled by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei: “Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order” and “Astan Quds Razavi”. As noted in the statement of the Secretary of State, these organizations, positioning themselves as charitable, “control a significant part of the Iranian economy, including assets taken from political dissidents and religious minorities in favor of the Supreme Leader and other representatives of the Iranian leadership. “.
In November 2020, the Ministry of Finance imposed sanctions on the Bonyad Mostazafan conglomerate, which is controlled by Khamenei and has stakes in key sectors of the Iranian economy. These three organizations, together with IRGC-owned Khatam al-Anbiya, are believed to control more than half of the Iranian economy..
“The United States will continue to harass businesses and individuals who enrich themselves by claiming to be helping the Iranian people,” Pompeo said..
