TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of the Iranian Judiciary's High Council for Human Rights Ali Baqeri Kani said 45 individuals and entities affiliated to the US’ unjust sanctions have been listed by Tehran prosecutor's office.

“Iranian Judiciary's High Council for Human Rights in cooperation with some related bodies like Intelligence Ministry based on the law of fighting human rights violation and the US terrorism has listed names of 45 American individuals and entities and has submitted the list to Tehran prosecutor's office,” Baqeri Kani said on Monday.
