The President of the Supreme Judicial Council holds a meeting with the US Treasury regarding sanctions against Iraqi individuals and companies

Faiq Zaidan, the president of the Supreme Judicial Council, met with a US Treasury team today, Monday, to discuss the recent sanctions imposed on individuals and businesses in Iraq.

In a statement, the Supreme Judicial Council said, “Today, in the presence of the Chargé d’Affaires of the US Mission in Iraq, David Berger, the Judicial Attaché at the US Embassy, Ellen Andrizzi, and his accompanying delegation, the head of the Supreme Judicial Council, Faiq Zaidan, received the US Treasury Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Brian Nelson.”

“The two parties discussed the legal procedures and sanctions issued by the US Treasury Department (OFAC) regarding Iraqi people and companies,” the Supreme Judicial Council’s media department said.

The United States of America declared on Monday, January 22, 2024, that it was imposing sanctions on the aviation firm “Fly Baghdad” because to allegations that it assisted the Iranian Revolutionary Guard in transferring military hardware and missiles to Syria.

Along with Representative Hussein Moanis, the official Salah Mahdi Hantoush Al-Maksousi, who is associated with the Hezbollah Brigades, and Riyad Ali Hussein Al-Azzawi (Al-Azzawi), an engineer in the Technical Equipment Directorate of the Popular Mobilization Committee and an expert in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), were also included on the US list. Not to mention the younger brother of the Phalange Secretary-General, Akkad Mohsen Faraj Al-Hamidawi (Aqqad Al-Hamidawi).
