Iran sanctions the EU and UK

Tehran, Dec 12 (Prensa Latina) The Iranian government announced today new sanctions for entities and individuals of the European Union (EU) and the United Kingdom for alleged support to terrorism, propagation of violence and hatred.

The new package, announced Monday by the Foreign Ministry, includes five institutions and 10 individuals from the EU, as well as four and 13, respectively, in the case of London.

According to the official statement, those involved will be punished due to their deliberate actions of supporting terrorist groups, promoting and inciting violence, causing unrest and violating human rights of the Persian nation.

Among those sanctioned from the EU bloc are the Persian-language service of Radio Farda, Radio Zamaneh, and the French magazine Charlie Hebdo, as well as the German firms Water Engineering Trading GmbH (W.E.T.) and Gidlemeister Projekta GmbH.

In the British case the Royal Air Force’s Menwith Hill military base near Harrogate (North Yorkshire), the Royal Navy’s Mina Salman naval base in Bahrain, the Committee for Iranian Freedom, and the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change are among the sanctioned.

The measures prohibit those involved from entering the Islamic Republic, and their property and assets here will be confiscated.

Both the EU and the United Kingdom imposed a set of sanctions on this nation under the pretext of alleged human rights violations and repression of the protests that began last September 16 after the death of the young Iranian Mahsa Amini.

The Persian authorities consider these acts of vandalism as part of a plan designed and financed by the United States, Israel and several European countries to destabilize the Persian nation.
