Majlis reports on $2.6b fraud case released

The report was read out during an open session of the Majlis on Sunday.

In the report, the committee said that Minister of Economic Affairs and Finance Shamseddin Hosseini, his deputy, Asqar Abolhassani, and the managers of the ministry and the banks involved in the case should be held accountable. 

It is suggested that Abolhassani, who is also a member of Bank Saderat’s management board, be removed from his post, or, in the event he resigns, his resignation be accepted, the report said.

The deputy governor of the Central Bank of Iran, Hamid Pourmohammadi, should also resign or be dismissed, it added.

The committee members also wrote, “The Judiciary has a responsibility to investigate and prove the accusations made against those who (allegedly) abused the banking system’s resources, and the committee has no say in that. Therefore, those people in the three branches of government who have failed to discharge their duties properly or committed offences should be firmly dealt with. The managing directors and the members of the management boards of the banks,” who have failed to fulfill their supervisory responsibilities and accusations against whom have been substantiated, should be relieved of their posts. 

“Managing directors and members of management boards of banks should be chosen from among those who do not hold any other post so that they can work full-time at banks. Therefore, it is necessary that those government managers who are currently members of banks’ management boards be removed, and regulations be revised if deemed necessary,” the report said.  

The fact that the irregularities committed by the banks involved in the fraud scheme were not dealt with is to blame for the fraud case, it added.
