These violations may only be part of the human rights violations that this person has been involved in. The investigation into this person's human rights record is ongoing.

On 13 April, 2011, the European Union placed seventeen Iranian officials, including Massoud Jazayeri, on the human rights sanctions list for their role in widespread and gross violations of the rights of Iranian citizens. The decision bans Jazayeri from entering the bloc and confiscates all of his assets in Europe. "Massoud Jazayeri, as Deputy Chief of Staff of the Armed Forces, has played an active role in suppressing the protests," the EU statement said.
