The United States has imposed sanctions on nine more Iranian officials, accusing them of what it calls serious human rights abuse. 

Iran's Interior Minister, Abdolreza Rahmani Fazli, is among the officials blacklisted by the United States. In a statement, the U-S Treasury secretary claimed the other officials on the list belong to Iran's Law Enforcement Forces and Islamic Revolution Guards Corps. Washington has frequently imposed sanctions on Iranian individuals and entities based on allegations that Tehran roundly rejects as groundless. Such measures stepped up after President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal in May 2018.
