ICBPS- The U.S. Sanctions Iran Infamous Judges, Notorious Prisons Following Execution of Champion Wrestler Navid Afkari. The U.S. Sanctions Iran authorities for gross violations of Human rights.

The United States has slapped new sanctions on an infamous Islamic judge reportedly involved in the case of Iranian champion wrestler Navid Afkari, who was hanged earlier September.

On Thursday, the U.S. imposed sanctions on a pair of Islamic judges who involved in human rights violations in Iran.

President Donald Trump administration has accused them of denying freedom and justice to the people of Iran.

In a statement on September 24, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced the sanctions against infamous Judge Sayyed Mahmoud Sadati.

“Today, the United States sanctioned several Iranian officials and entities for gross violations of human rights. Pursuant to Section 106 of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act of 2017 (CAATSA), I determined that Judge Seyyed Mahmoud Sadati, Judge Mohammad Soltani, Branch 1 of the Revolutionary Court of Shiraz, and Adel Abad, Orumiyeh, and Vakilabad Prisons were responsible for certain gross violations of human rights. This includes prior incidence of torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment, arbitrary detentions, and denials of the right to liberty of those seeking only to practice their faith, peacefully assemble, or to express themselves.”

The Islamic judge Sadati and Branch 1 of Shiraz Islamic Revolutionary Court were reported to be involved in Afkari’s case, according to the statement.

The designations of Islamic authorities made for ‘denying freedom and justice to the Iranians, says Washington.

“We are taking major new actions which support the Iranian people,” said Mike Pompeo.

“The United States is committed to holding accountable those who are denying freedom and justice to the people of Iran.”

“The judges and the wider Islamic Revolutionary Court System are “tools designed to enforce the Islamic regime’s brutal ideology and suppress dissent,” emphasized Mike Pompeo.

“They do not fairly administer justice, but rather seek to deprive the Iranian people of due process as well as their human rights and fundamental freedoms. This same system of injustice wrongfully detains three Americans: Baquer and Siamak Namazi, and Morad Tahbaz. We will continue to make every effort to bring them home. The United States will continue to stand with the Iranian people and demand the regime treat them with the respect and dignity they deserve.”

The Islamic tyrants in occupied Iran hanged the Iranian wrestler Navid Afkari on an early morning Saturday, September 12, 2020.

“Navid Afkari was hanged at Shiraz Adel Abad prison under Qisas (equal punishment for the alleged crime committed).

The Islamic Judiciary public relations announced that it carried out the death penalty early morning on September 12, 2020.
