Following the public outcry over illegal car imports often reported in the local media, the Majlis launched an inquiry the results of which were published on Tuesday.

According to the report published by Mehr News Agency, the Intelligence Ministry and Islamic Republic of Iran Customs Administration have confirmed the outcome of the parliamentary report.
The probe was led by the Majlis Industries Commission. Though representatives from the Intelligence Ministry did not give a written statement to the commission, they have confirmed “the existence of rent-seeking and other illicit practices” in the lucrative auto sector.
