MEK Iran: Corruption Major Sources
According to the report by the Iranian opposition, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI), and the People’s Mujahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK Iran), Iranian regime President Ebrahim Raisi unveiled a 12-point plan to combat economic problems and management corruption on September 15.
In his cabinet meeting, Raisi stated that one of his government’s top tasks will be to detect corruption bottlenecks and eliminate any potential corruption in the government.
The Iranian dictatorship is publicly broadcasting news of people being executed for their roles in large economic corruption cases. Typically, these are businessmen with close ties to regime officials. Such persons have been nicknamed ‘Sultans’ by state media, referring to the large sums of money they have stolen through extortion and their connections inside the regime’s hierarchy.
These sultans, on the other hand, have gone nowhere, are still attached to the dictatorship, and continue to plunder public property.
“Carrots were more expensive because of a media blackout during [Iran’s] thirteenth government, and no one followed the carrot Sultan! Eggs grew more expensive after that, and there was still no news of a Sultan. We eventually had to pay a hefty price for rice, which reached 500,000 rials (about $2) per kilogram. And no one bothered to ask about the Sultan of rice! Where have these Sultans gone that no one is looking at their problems anymore? “According to a story published in the state-run Aftab Yazd daily on September 19.
Iran’s economic problems
When it comes to Iran’s economic problems, we’re not dealing with a Sultan of carrots or coins, but with the regime’s high-ranking officials who manufacture currencies, producing inflation and hardship.
According to a September 16 report published by the state-run Etemad daily, “According to the latest official Central Bank report, liquidity has increased by 2,160 trillion rials (around $7.7 billion) in the two months leading up to August alone,” according to the latest official Central Bank report. This translates to 67.5 trillion rials (about $128 million) in daily cash printing with no backup assets.
“Bank loans are serving the purpose of buying and selling assets, rather than facilitating production,” Farhikhtegan explained.
The regime’s “Anti-Narcotics Headquarters” which includes the Ministry of Interior, the regime’s Judiciary, the State Security Forces, the Ministry of Intelligence, and the Revolutionary Guards, was described as the “Drug Monitoring Headquarters.” in a report published by the state-run Javan Online website on September 27. The narcotics trade is worth 1.67 quadrillion rials (about $6 billion), which helps to cover the costs of exporting terrorism and supporting the regime’s proxies.
The poor basically have no purchasing power
Bahman Arman, a government-linked economist, said: “In such circumstances, the poor basically have no purchasing power. There are indications that poverty, which is on the rise in Iran’s society, has spread to the point where stealing meat has become the new normal “According to a September 28 report by the state-run Arman daily, Bahman Arman, a government-linked economist, on Raisi’s definition of implementing justice.
It’s worth emphasizing that the regime’s tools for preventing uprisings include inflation and increasing prices. A government expert has ironically cautioned the regime, according to a September 28 report published by the state-run Shargh daily: “How much power does a society have to withstand these pressures!”
Raisi’s promises to fight corruption are as empty as those made by his predecessors. However, the regime has drained the country and its people of their last rials, and the people now have nothing left to lose. This is why, despite the regime’s brutality, the spread of the coronavirus, and plenty of other issues, protests persist across the country.
