Washington, 7 September 2021 (TDI): USA Secretary Of State Antony Blinken stated on Monday that the USA has sanctioned 4 Iranian Intelligence Officers on charges of plotting an abduction of an American-based activist.
The names of 4 sanctioned intelligence officers were announced by US Treasury Department. The names are Alireza Shahvaroghi Farahani, Mahmoud Khazein, Kiya Sadeghi, and Omid Noori. Under Executive order 13553, the financial assets of 4 intelligence agents in the USA have been frozen. Manhattan Federal Court convicted 4 intelligence agents in July against conspiring to abduct Masih Alinjad, an Iranian-American-based women rights activist.
However, Iran responded to allegations as baseless.
