U.S. drops sanctions on three Iranian


The Treasury said it had determined Behzad Ferdows, Mehrzad Ferdows and Mohammad Reza Dezfulian are no longer blocked under Executive Order 13382, which targets proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and their supporters.


The order froze their U.S. assets and barred U.S. persons from dealing with them. All three were also subject to secondary sanctions, meaning non-U.S. persons who dealt with them risked themselves being sanctioned and cut off from the U.S. market.
