sanctions video series

November 25, 2013, Washington, D.C. – The Public Affairs Alliance of Iranian Americans (PAAIA) today released the second video in its educational series on the sanctions against Iran and what Iranian Americans need to know about how these sanctions may impact their lives. In this video, Erich Ferrari of Ferrari & Associates, P.C., discusses various myths about OFAC licenses required for transferring money and when transactions actually require an OFAC license.

The videos are part of PAAIA’s effort to ensure that the Iranian American community is well-informed on issues related to U.S.- Iran relations, such as the economic sanctions, and how to follow the related laws appropriately. The videos are informative in nature and should not be construed as legal advice.
