US clears new sanctions against Iran over internet censorship

The United States Treasury Department issued on Friday new sanctions against Tehran over internet censorship.

According to the statement released by the department, these new measures concern the company Arvan Cloud, two company staff, and an associated firm for their role in assisting the government.

"The Iranian government has regularly used Internet restrictions and the throttling of Internet speeds to suppress dissent, surveil and punish Iranians for exercising their freedom of expression and assembly both online and offline," the statement read.
