U.S Announces New Sanctions on Iran’s Financial Sector

The Trump administration announced sweeping new sanctions on Iran’s financial sector, a move intended to choke off the country’s economy from the rest of the world and raise pressure on its government to enter a new deal constraining its nuclear program.

Under the measures, by the country’s treasury department, the administration blacklisted 18 banks in Iran that have so far escaped some U.S  restrictions, using authorities designed to punish entities associated with terrorism, ballistic-missile development, and human-rights abuses.

The Iranian financial sector was also designated as off-limits under an executive order that Donald Trump signed in January.

The new sanctions were revealed in a web posting by the office of foreign assets control.

They had been telegraphed in advance by U.S officials, who have been weighing the move for weeks.

Protesters March Against Decision Not To Charge Officer In Wauwatosa, US.

Protesters marched in Wauwatosa, Milwaukee County to protest the decision not to charge a police officer in the killing of a 17-year-old African-American youth in February.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisholm said Wauwatosa Police Officer Joseph Mensah acted in self-defense by shooting Alvin Cole after police responded to a disturbance at a shopping mall.

In a 14-page letter addressed to Wauwatosa Police Chief Barry Weber, Chisholm presented details of the investigation into the incident and the reasons for his decision not to charge Mensah.

Chisholm said the investigation found that Cole had a stolen 9mm pistol which he displayed at the Mayfair Mall during an argument with another person and when police arrived, Cole ran from officers, discharged the gun, refused to surrender it, and was then fired on by Mensah.

“There is sufficient evidence that Officer Mensah had an actual subjective belief that deadly force was necessary and that belief was objectively reasonable. I do not believe that the State could disprove self-defense or defense of others in this case and therefore could not meet the burden required to charge Officer Mensah,” he said.
