The federal government has issued new sanctions against Iranian entities and individuals for human rights violations and for supporting the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
Foreign Minister Penny Wong said Magnitsky-style financial sanctions and travel bans had also been issued against 14 Iranian individuals, along with 14 entities.
Among those affected are four members of the Morality Police, responsible for the arrest and detention of Mahsa ‘Jina’ Amini.
The 22-year-old was arrested in September last year for “improperly” wearing her hijab and died in custody.
Her death sparked widespread protests by women all over Iran.
The sanctions also extend to senior law enforcement officials and military figures, such as those from the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.
Senator Wong said sanctions and travel bans were also imposed against 13 individuals and another entity for supplying Russia with drones that had been used to target Ukrainian civilians and infrastructure during the invasion.
“This list demonstrates that there will be consequences for those who provide material support to Russia,” Senator Wong said in a statement.
“Australia stands with the people of Iran and with the people of Ukraine”.
