WASHINGTON (Dispatches) -- The United States on Tuesday imposed sanctions on Iran’s central bank governor, Valiollah Seif, and Iraq-based Al-Bilad Islamic Bank for "moving millions of dollars” for Iran.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin accused Seif of covertly funneling millions of dollars on behalf of the IRGC through Al-Bilad bank "to enrich and support” Hezbollah. The U.S. Treasury also blacklisted Ali Tarzali, assistant director of the international department of Iran’s central bank, and the chairman of Al-Bilad Islamic Bank, Aras Habib.
