Rouhani Orders Clampdown on Unlawful Vehicle Imports

President Hassan Rouhani has issued a two-week ultimatum to a string of government bodies to crack down on corrupt circles which have brought cars into Iran through illicit means and had the vehicles cleared from customs warehouses by forgery.
A litany of corruption allegations has rattled Iran’s auto market as reports of misconduct piled up and prompted the president himself to demand a full-scale and speedy inquiry into the matter.
To spearhead a transparency campaign and alleviate public concerns, Rouhani issued an official statement on Saturday, ordering several state bodies to investigate a possible ploy by “government employees, one computer company and a number of importers” to obtain clearance from the customs administration through illicit channels for several hundreds of vehicles brought into Iran.
