"Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors of Imen Sanat Zaman Fara."1

According to the U.S. Department of the Treasury, Imen Sanat Zaman Fara "manufactures numerous types of equipment for Iran’s Law Enforcement Forces (LEF), and in particular, the LEF Special Units, one of the Islamic Republic’s main protest suppression forces... Among other equipment, the Imen Sanat Zaman Fara Company produces armored vehicles, also described as 'tactical' vehicles, for use in crowd suppression. During the recent nationwide protests, video and photographic evidence has illustrated Iranian security forces using armored vehicles to suppress protests and, in some cases, attempt to run over protestors. LEF Special Units commander Hassan Karami explicitly lauded the use of Imen Sanat Zaman Fara Company armored vehicles in protest suppression. Imen Sanat Zaman Fara Company also produces automatic grenade launchers, bulletproof vests, shields, and other products used by security forces in protest suppression."2 

Imen Sanat Zaman Fara has been sanctioned by the U.S., EU, and Canada for human rights abuses.3
