On August 21, the U.S. Department of State announced visa restrictions on Yadollah Samadi for his involvement in gross violations of human rights on behalf of the Iranian regime, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism;

This action was taken pursuant to Section 7031(c) of the Department of State, Foreign Operations, and Related Programs Appropriations Act, FY 2020, making ineligible for entry into the United States officials of foreign governments and their immediate family members about whom the Secretary of State has credible information of involvement in a gross violation of human rights;

This action includes visa restrictions on Yadollah Samadi involved in a brutal and intricately planned assassination carried out in Switzerland in 1990 as part of Iran’s ongoing worldwide campaign of violence and terrorism;

Yadollah Samadi, who posed as Iranian diplomat, was acting under the highest orders of their government to silence opposition and show that no one is safe from the Iranian regime, no matter where they live;

Yadollah Samadi, was born in Tehran in 1958. He had received his diplomatic passport with the serial number 060198 in Tehran on October 16, 1989. On a mission to gather information, he flew to Geneva on the same date his passport had been issued. Samadi’s next trip to Geneva was on January 31, 1990 and he was accompanied by Saeed Hemati, Sadegh Baba’ie, Mahmoud Sajadian, Mohammad Reza Jazayeri and Ali Hadavi. Their assassination plan was a failure and it was abandoned. His third trip to Geneva, however, took place on April 10, 1990. He flew by Iran Air and his ticket’s serial number was 096 4261 960892. Samadi was responsible for making the necessary arrangements for the assassination including renting cars;
