An official of the US Secretary of State said that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Thursday afternoon imposed sanctions on Judge Syed MahmoUd Sadati, Branch 1 of the Revolutionary Court of Shiraz and Naveed Afkari for his involvement in the trial, imprisonment and execution of Adelabad Jail. Will announce Afkari was a wrestler who was arrested’ in 2018 for taking part in a protest. He was charged’ with murder, torture and execution on September 12, according to the U.S. official.

"These so-called 'revolutionary courts' are not the ones that will be recognized as a court in the United States. Elliott Abrams, the US special envoy for Iran, said: "Their goal is to maintain the government's capacity for power and to imprison or order the execution of Iranians seeking freedom." They take orders of their decisions from Ayatollah and they ridicule justice.

The execution drew sharp international condemnation. It also forced state and treasury officials to complete the approval process, which, according to one official, could take months, often less than two weeks, according to one official.

The sanctions represent a change in the State Department's long-standing policy of removing judges and courts from human rights in foreign countries. According to the US official, in order to authorize the sanctions, Pompeo vowed that the Iranian court system does not work like the ordinary court system.

According to the US official, US citizen Michael White was detained’ before his release in June, where US citizen Michael White was released.

In December, under a separate authority, the Treasury Department approved two judges to preside over branches of Iran's revolutionary courts, allowing them to "exercise their freedom and freedom of expression and serve long prison terms." Has been sentenced’ to flogging and even execution. "

The Trump administration has stepped up its campaign against Iran, seeking to restore UN Security Council sanctions this week that were suspended’ by the 2015 Iran nuclear deal. The United States withdrew from the agreement in 2018, and other countries in the agreement could refuse to force the United States to impose UN sanctions on Iran. In a joint statement, Britain, France and Germany said the US exercise "has no legal effect." The US president announced on Monday that he would enforce the sanctions anyway.

Since the US withdrawal from the deal, Iran has consistently violated the terms of the agreement and strengthened its nuclear program. Earlier this month, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran had 10 times enriched uranium under the deal.

Asked this week whether Iran's nuclear program would be as advanced as the United States remains in the deal, Pompeo said, "Iran will have more wealth. This government has more to build more centrifuges. There will be even more money to build capabilities, to further enhance the air defense system, which could prevent us from acquiring nuclear weapons.
