Iranian Lawmakers Endorse Amended CFT BillIranian Lawmakers Endorse Amended CFT Bill

Iranian lawmakers passed amendments to a landmark anti-terror finance bill approved in October in order to address objections raised by the constitutional watchdog the Guardian Council. 
The changes had been endorsed earlier by the Majlis Foreign Policy and National Security Commission, but were passed by the full chamber on Wednesday. 
MPs however insisted on the second note of the bill, rejecting any tweaks to them, IRNA reported. In order to become law, bills passed by the parliament must also be approved by the Guardian Council – a body made up of six clerics appointed by the Supreme Leader and six lawyers charged with ensuring draft laws are compatible with religious laws and the Islamic Republic Constitution.
