Final Event Reminder: Swedish Companies With Reported Ties To Iranian Regime Set To Be Exposed On 28 September

(Stockholm, Sweden / New York, N.Y) – At 11am (CEST), 28 September at the Riksdag in RÖ2 - Mittpoolen in Stockholm, Member of the Swedish Riksdag Alireza Akhondi and United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI)’s CEO Ambassador Mark D. Wallace will host a public event where they will reveal the names of Swedish companies, including major corporations, who are unable or unwilling to explain their advertised ties to the Islamic Republic. Journalists are invited to join in person or remotely.

Research conducted by #StopIRGCDeals, the new campaign vehicle launched by UANI, has identified a list of Swedish entities with unexplained Iran ties. Each has been contacted and given the opportunity to clarify.

According to Alireza Akhondi, who serves as European policy advisor for UANI, Swedish companies have a particular responsibility to cut ties to the Islamic Republic. In addition to the regime’s brutal reaction to the peaceful Woman, Life, Freedom demonstrations that followed Mahsa Amini’s murder and the Islamic Republic’s extensive military support for Vladimir Putin’s war of aggression in Ukraine, Tehran also continues to ramp up its hostility towards Sweden specifically with the detainment of 33 year old Swedish national Johan Floderus on baseless charges and warnings by Sweden’s security intelligence service of Tehran’s large-scale industrial espionage.

On 28 September, UANI will unmask those companies that cannot or will not explain their decision to continue trading with Iran, despite the well documented risk of providing financial support to the regime.
