On Monday, Britain sanctioned IRGC financial investment officers.
After the September death of young Iranian Kurdish lady Mahsa Amini in morality police arrest, the UK, EU, and the US placed repeated rounds of sanctions on Iran, alleging a savage crackdown on demonstrators.
Protests are the largest threat to the theocracy since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Iran blames Western powers for the unrest, which security forces mercilessly crushed.
“Today we are taking action on the senior IRGC commanders who feed money into the regime’s harsh repression,” Foreign Secretary James Cleverly said.
After the 1979 Islamic Revolution, the IRGC was formed to protect Shi’ite clerics. Its 125,000 armies, naval and air troops, and Basij religious militia constantly crackdown.
Five IRGC Co-operative Foundation Board members and two Tehran and Alborz commanders were sanctioned with asset freezes, and UK travel bans.
