Iran Judiciary Claims Gov’t Oblivious to CAJ OrderIran Judiciary Claims Gov’t Oblivious to CAJ Order

While a deputy minister of industries says the government’s latest auto import directive stands, the judiciary’s deputy for crime prevention claimed Monday that the government’s noncompliance with an order issued by the Court of Administrative Justice suspending the latest auto import rules is tantamount to breach of law.
As per the CAJ ruling issued some two weeks ago, import tariffs on vehicles should be rolled back to before the Dec. 30 amendment. The government had announced the long-awaited tariff rates for car imports in the closing days of 2017. The directive pushed up car tariffs to 65%.
The judiciary deputy chief, Mohammad Baqer Olfat, says “Flouting the court order is the equivalent of a crime that warrants prosecution,” reported IRNA.
