Parliamentarians have reviewed and passed a majority of articles concerning a bill that envisions the establishment of a new specialized organization for combating economic corruption.
According to Hassan Norouzi, spokesman of Majlis Judicial and Legal Commission, the commission convened on Tuesday with the participation of experts from Majlis Research Center and the judiciary. It ratified 50 articles of the bill to establish an organization for fighting economic corruption.
“This organization will have independent judges and its head will have a level 9 judicial license and 15 years of experience,” he told ICANA, the official news outlet of the parliament. The announcement comes on the heels of ongoing government crackdowns on economic corruption and rent-seeking activities that have become more prevalent after Iran’s currency crisis.
