US Announces New Sanctions Against Iran, Targeting Former Nuclear Scientists

The US Treasury Department announced a new round of anti-Iran sanctions on Friday, hitting 14 individuals and 17 companies, all of them who have some link to Iran’s Organization for Defense Innovation and Research (SPND).

It is unclear if these targets are generally accused of having done anything illegal, in and of themselves, though officials claimed some of the companies were “front companies” who might be used to avoid sanctions.

The individual scientists being targeted are another matter, as some of them are being “former nuclear weapons scientists,” and the sanctions are intended to harm their ability to work on any such activity in the future, if they were ever so inclined.
