Financial sanctions against Bank Saderat Iran
All moneys and economic resources of Bank Saderat Iran in Europe are blocked (Regulation EU 961/2010 of 25.10.2010 by EU-Council)
Therefore we are not able to handle any new business until further notice.
But on 5. February 2013 the General Court (Fourth Chamber, Case T‑494/10) has declared the annulment of the sanction measures in so far as they concern Bank Saderat Iran. Since EC-Commission has brought an appeal, under the second paragraph of Article 60 of the Statute of the Court of Justice of the European Union this decision takes effect only as from the date of dismissal of the appeal. Dismissal decision will be made after hearing the parties again - not before summer 2015, until then we are deprived of our rights.
