Iran's Judiciary Chief Urges Supreme Leader Khamenei to Set Up Special Courts for Curbing Financial Malpractices

  • Chief of Iran’s judiciary, Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani, has reportedly written a letter to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei saying that the ongoing special economic conditions (referring to the widespread financial crimes) in the country should be considered as an economic war. The judiciary chief, in the reported letter, asked Khamenei to set up special courts for quickly dealing with the financial crimes. Iran’s Supreme Leader agreed to set up special courts for punishing those who are “guilty of corrupt economic practices”  in a swift and just manner. In the letter, Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani also urged the supreme leader to set up New Islamic revolutionary courts for a period of 2 years so that the persons involved in financial malpractices can be given maximum sentences.
