Mega-Scandal in Iran: $35 Billion in Oil Money Missing from State Coffers


In a shocking report, the chief auditing office of the Iranian parliament says that tens of billions of dollars in oil revenues from 2006-2007 have vanished.

Heads will roll for this…BUT then they do, anyway…Ahmadinejad, may soon be shorter…Awww, SHIT!

Bits:

In what appears to be the biggest case of corruption in Iran, and perhaps in the Middle East, the Tehran-based Shahab News reported that the chief auditing office of the Iranian parliament (Majlis) has revealed that close to $35 billion of oil income from the financial year 2006-07 is missing.

According to Iranian law, this money should have been paid by the government of President Ahmadinejad into Iran’s central bank. Once there, the government can request the withdrawal of funds for projects, depending upon the approval of the Majlis. However, the new investigation shows that the government never paid the money into the central bank, and no one knows what has happened to it. Although it has not yet been proven, many suspect that the money has been used to finance corrupt activities of politicians surrounding the president, or the president himself. After all, it is very unlikely that this could have happened without his knowledge.
