"Mohammad Hossein Khosravi (Khosravi) is the Director-General of Sistan and Baluchistan Province Prisons and former warden of Zahedan Prison. Under his administration, Zahedan Prison was infamous for torture and poor conditions, including a lack of medical care and the mistreatment of prisoners by staff. Khosravi is being designated pursuant to E.O. 13553 for being officials of the Government of Iran or persons acting on behalf of the Government of Iran (including members of paramilitary organizations) who are responsible for or complicit in, or responsible for ordering, controlling, or otherwise directing, the commission of serious human rights abuses against persons in Iran or Iranian citizens or residents, or the family members of the foregoing, on or after June 12, 2009, regardless of whether such abuses occurred in Iran."1 

"As Director-General of Sistan and BaluchestanProvince Prisons, Mohammad Hossein Khosravi oversees prisons in the province of Sistan and Baluchestan. Prisons in the province, including Zahedan Central Prison are known for inhumane detention conditions, including poor health and sanitary conditions, refusal of medical care, excessive use of force against prisoners and extrajudicial killings. Under his administration, Zahedan prison alone has conducted numerous executions with a disproportionate number of them targeting Iran’s Baluchi minority and has been involved in the crackdown of 2022/2023 protests following the death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini in the custody of Iran’s Morality Police. Mohammad Hossein Khosravi is therefore responsible for serious human rights violations in Iran."2

"Mohammed Hossein KHOSRAVI is an "involved person" under the Iran (Sanctions) (Human Rights) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 because he is or has been involved in the commission of a serious human rights violation or abuse in Iran through his position as the Director-General of Sistan and Baluchestan Province Prisons and the former Warden of Zahedan Central Prison."3
