The company’s name is Milad Darou Noor, (شرکت داروسازی میلاد دارو نور), also known as Milad Pharmaceutics.

Milad Darou Noor is controlled by individuals who belong to SPND and/or to the IRGC. Milad Darou Noor is a commercial spin-off from efforts by Iran’s Ministry of Defense (وزارت دفاع و پشتیبانی نیروهای مسلح) to manufacture defensive equipment and antidotes against chemical and biological weapons (CBW). And all of Milad Darou Noor’s key officials have dabbled in CBW-related research that veers extremely close to being intended for offensive use, rather than defensive purposes.

Here’s how the company’s connections look like from some parsing of Iranian business records and other information available to Redline:

ifmat - Another SPND front company unveiled Milad Darou Noor

Milad Darou Noor has lazily re-used an address off Mirsharifi Street and a phone number (021-22658404) that both belonged to an old SPND associate. In this case, that address and number belonged to Dr Parisa Nasiri (پریسا نصیری, ID: 0061381421), who has been director of several SPND front companies and is married to one of the original AMAD men, Seyyed Borborudi (سیدشمس‌الدین بربرودی). And that address was a step up on the OPSEC ladder from Milad Darou’s original Tehran address, which we found in business records That address was at the postcode 1668947861: which is the registered location of – erm – SPND.

The directors of Milad Darou Noor are all easily tied to SPND or the IRGC. There’s Dr Ali Gharibian (علي غريبيان, national ID 0051332574), a biologist and close associate of SPND.

Davoud Etesami (داوود اعتصامی, national ID: 0491717156) is an AMAD metallurgist has published books under the SPND banner. Hosseinali Etehadi (حسین‌علی اتحادی, ID: 0045940576) is a medical professor from the IRGC-owned Baghiatallah Medical Sciences University (دانشگاه علوم پزشكي بقيةالله), and a past employee of the SPND-linked Shahid Meisami Research Centre who’s also written books explicitly under the affiliation of SPND. Ali Pourasad (علی پوراسد, ID: 2295925649) is another Shahid Meisami man; Rouhollah Ghalandari (روح اله قلندری, ID: 0450440214) is another IRGC professor at Baghiatallah University.
