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.

The European Union (EU) has placed Ali Fazli on a human rights sanctions list for its role in widespread and gross violations of the rights of Iranian citizens in a decision dated 13 April 2011. According to the decision, Fazli will be barred from entering the countries of the EU and all his possible assets will be confiscated in Europe. According to the EU statement, Ali Fazli, as commander of the Seyed al-Shohada Division in Tehran, has played a key role in the crackdown on protesters following the 2009 election results.

In April 2012, the US Treasury Department placed Ali Fazli on its list of human rights sanctions. Violent suppression of peaceful post-election protests as the commander of the Seyed al-Shohada Corps in 2009 and the subsequent cyber-attacks on "foreign news websites"  by forces under Ali Fazli’s command as the deputy commander of Basij are among the human rights violations mentioned  by the US Treasury as reasons for the decision. According to this decision, Ali Fazli's potential assets in the United States will be frozen and he will be barred from entering the United States.
