The Iran Sanctions Regime: Tracking Criminals Who Transship $5,241 of Dental Equipment

As the sanctions regime makes life worse and worse for ordinary Iranians, we will hear more about the humanitarian impact of it.

Which is why I find OFAC’s latest enforcement action of note: Treasury fined the medical supply company, Brasseler, $18,900 for transshipping a total of $5,241 of medical supplies through third countries to Iran once in 2006 and twice in 2009.

To be fair, some of the dental equipment that Brasseler makes might be imagined to be a dual use item, in that aluminum tube kind of way. So I guess you gotta bring the hammer for shipping medical supplies that might help the Iranian people.

Cause part of accomplishing regime change in Iran is to ensure Iranians’ teeth fall out, I guess.
