Detention of Another Corruption Sultan

By Pooya Stone

Tying between wealth and power in Iran resulted in the emergence of systematic corruption that has covered the governing system in its entirety. This event provided a safe margin for government-linked corruptors, and it has expanded to the point where it has created a systemic corruption mindset.

In this regard, whatever the country approaches the parliamentarian election, the various factions unveil more details about the corruption cases of their rivals. However, this infighting revealed the expansion of corruption in the rulers regardless of their political dependency. Some of these cases include:
1. Conviction of the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s brother, Hossein Fereydoun, to serve a five-year jail term in a corruption case;
2. Arresting of the executive deputy judiciary system Akbar Tabari, which sparked a new round of infighting between the former head of the judiciary and current head of expediency discernment council Sadeq Amoli Larijani and Ebrahim Raisi as the current head. Notably, Larijani and Raisi are close to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, and he appointed both by religious ordinance.

3. The revelation of two MPs’ involvement and their fraud in the case of selling thousands of automobiles.
4. The role of the deputy head of a government organization in selling imported meat outside the legal network.
However, these facts are a part of corruption’s truth in Iran but obviously proved the widespread corruption in the various sectors of the government.
Rasoul Danialzadeh renowned as “Steel Sultan”
The recent unveiled corruption case belongs to Iran of businessman Rasoul Danialzadeh, who is renowned as the sultan of steel in Iran. “The accused [Danialzadeh] had returned to the country under the guidance…of the Revolutionary Guards’ intelligence agents.” On November 13, Judiciary spokesman Gholamhossein Esmaili announced.
Esmaeeli warily admitted that the corruption businessman was sure to face lenience treatment, saying, “There was no arrest overseas. He was advised to return of his own accord, and this is what happened,” the judiciary’s news agency Mizan reported.
“It is found that Danialzadeh has a large bank debt in his case. Some had estimated it to be over 2,600 billion tomans ($1.2 billion),” the IRGC-owned Fars News Agency reported.
“Danialzadeh is one of the country’s larger bank debtors who, in the case of Hossein Rouhani, was convicted to bribery. But he fled the country after arresting of Akbar Tabari,” judiciary spokesman stressed.
Fars News Agency had earlier written, “Danyalzadeh could change many of the bank’s CEOs and bring them along using his influence on Hossein Fereydoun. Danielzadeh could achieve his all goals by paying 31 billion tomans bribery to the President’s brother and donating a 640-meter villa to his wife in Tehran’s pleasant weather zone.”
