UK Banks “Close Accounts” of Iranian Customers

By John Lee.

UK-based Blackstone Solicitors is reportedly handling more than 60 complaints by Iranian nationals who have had their bank accounts closed, allegedly because of their nationality.

Some banks refuse to explain why they closed the accounts, while others cite sanctions against Iran as the main reason.

The head of the firms Iran desk told The Guardian:

“In the past two or three months more people have come to us to instruct us to act on their behalf because of their bank account closures.”
