USA imposes financial sanctions linked to Iranian paramilitaries

The United States Government today imposed new sanctions on Iran, this time to a score of financial entities linked to a paramilitary organization in the country.

The punishments were established on Monday by the Treasury Department on two dozen banking and investment institutions that, according to the US, contribute to the economic support of the paramilitary force of Iranian Islamic Volunteers (Basij), which the US links with the Corps of the Guardians of the Revolution.

All these entities are located in Iranian territory, US officials said in a telephone call.
