PAAIA Featured in Huffington Post Article on Iran Sanctions

October, 19, 2011, Washington, D.C. – PAAIA’s Chairmen, Ali Mojdehi, and former Executive Director and Partner at BHFA Law Group, Babak Hoghooghi, were recently interviewed for a Huffington Post article titled “Who Iran Sanctions Are Really Affecting” concerning the impact that Iran sanctions have on the Iranian American community.  Interviews with Iranian American advocacy organizations and attorneys who practice in trade regulations and sanctions reveal unintended consequences that are affecting the lives of many Iranian Americans and other U.S. persons.  “A large percentage of Iranian Americans still have family — immediate and close relatives — living in Iran and still keep relatively frequent communication with them in Iran,” explained Mojdehi in the article. “As such, sanctions impact a significant number of Iranian Americans both personally and professionally.  For example, inheritance is becoming a big issue for many Iranian Americans who have inherited assets from deceased parents and now are not sure how their parents’ will can be administered and assets distributed without running afoul of US sanctions laws.”
