OFAC targets Iraqi financial conduit

The Treasury Department announced on Wednesday that OFAC has imposed sanctions on an Iraq-based Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force (IRGC-QF) financial conduit, South Wealth Resources Company (SWRC), which has trafficked hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of weapons to IRGC-QF-backed Iraqi militias. SWRC and its two Iraqi associates, who were also designated Wednesday, have covertly facilitated the IRGC-QF’s access to the Iraqi financial system to evade sanctions. Identity information on the SWRC and the two designated associates can be found in BankersOnline's OFAC Update.
