"Ali Asghar Norouzi (Norouzi) serves as the chairman of the IRGC Cooperative Foundation’s board of directors. In his position as a senior IRGC officer, Norouzi has played a crucial role in facilitating the transfer of funds and weapons to regional proxies in the Middle East."1 

"Ali Asghar Nourouzi “NOUROUZI” is an involved person within the meaning of the Iran (Sanctions) (HumanRights) (EU Exit) Regulations 2019 as, through his role as Chairman of the Board of Directors the Islamic RevolutionaryGuard Corps (IRGC) Cooperative Foundation, he is or has been responsible for providing financial services that could contribute to a serious human rights violation or abuse in Iran. In this role he is also associated with the IRGC, an organisation that is involved in the commission of serious human rights violations in Iran."2 

"Ali Asghar Nourouzi is the chairman of the board of directors of the EU-listed Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Cooperative Foundation. The IRGC has been at the forefront of the repression of the 2022/2023 protests in Iran which has seen more than 520 people killed, over 70 of whom were minors, and more than 22 000 arrests/imprisonments effected. The IRGC Cooperative Foundation is the body responsible for managing the IRGC’s investments and in that framework it is responsible for funnelling money into the regime’s brutal repression. As chairman of the board of directors of the IRGC Cooperative Foundation, Ali Asghar Nourouzi is therefore responsible for willingly and knowingly providing the instruments with which the brutal and ongoing repression has been carried out. He is therefore responsible for serious human rights violations in Iran."
