EC Member: AML Bill Not Rejected

The recent announcement by the council that the AML bill is against the country’s major policies was not a rejection of the bill since some of those issues can be resolved with “an extra explanation” of the parliament
We should not provide pretexts to the US and adversaries of the Islamic Republic at a time when the US has been defeated on political and legal fronts by the Islamic Republic and faces isolation

EC Member: AML Bill Not Rejected

A senior member of Expediency Council, a body that settles disputes between the Majlis and the vetting body Guardians Council, said EC members have not rejected the government bill to amend the country's Anti-Money Laundering Law.
The bill is part of the Action Plan set forth by the inter-governmental Financial Action Task Force, which Iran intends to implement before FATF decides on the country's status in its upcoming meeting in October. 
Majid Ansari, who is a member of EC's High Supervisory Commission, said the recent announcement by the council that the AML bill is against the country's major policies was not a rejection of the bill since some of those issues can be resolved with "an extra explanation" of the parliament. 
According to Ansari, a repudiation or acceptance of a bill by EC only happens when the council's members take sides in a dispute between the Guardians Council and the Majlis.
