Iran corruption

By Jubin Katiraie

The coronavirus has dramatically changed the world in 2020, but out of the bad, many countries are seeing an increase in collaboration, social solidarity, and personal sacrifice.

But Iran has been taken hostage by the mullahs and needs to rid itself of two diseases: COVID-19 and the mullahs.

Even as numerous officials and medical personnel in Iran say that there has been an uptick in infection rates and that no one should consider the coronavirus eliminated in any area of the country, the authorities ordered people back to work last month spurring a second wave of the outbreak.

To be clear, there are several ways to reduce the spread of infection in Iran, including paying workers to stay home, but the problem is that the government does not want to do these because they do not care about public health.

What the mullahs care about is keeping control, so they ordered the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) to move residents of urban slums back to villages under the pretext that they would be in cleaner, healthier conditions and that they could help with food production to earn higher wages.

But the authorities’ real goal is to alter the social makeup of cities to prevent too many more people living near each other because they think this will prevent an uprising of furious people who are angry at the officials’ mishandling of this crisis.

The regime has more than enough money to solve the problems of the people and prevent an uprising that way. Instead, they are wasting money on things like an IRGC housing project and a nationwide military parade of the Basij.

In a related matter, there have been additional clashes between the faction associated with previous judiciary chief Sadeq Amoli-Larijani and the faction linked to current chief Ebrahim Raisi over the arrest of Akbar Tabari-Pour, the Executive Vice President and Director General of Finance of the Judiciary for more than 20 years, who was fired by Raisi last year.

There were many corruption scandals involving Tabari-Pour, but his arrest does not indicate a crackdown on the practice, but rather a scape-goating of someone loyal to a previous justice chief.

The Iranian Resistance said: “We can at least see that we are dealing not with a government but with a mafia. The Islamic Republic is run by mafias guarded by the Revolutionary Guards, and corruption within the mafia must be addressed from several angles.”
