Khamenei’s Children Scandal

These days many Iranians talk about an important economic scandal. CNN: Khamenei’s Children Involved in Huge Embezzlement from Iran’s Railroad Development Project and Les Echos, French newspaper, has the same report This report seem really true, because it agrees with many other evidence of organized corruptions in the regime. The following are excerpts of this report:

The Chinese who happen to be the focal point of nearly all major oil contracts and general trade with the Iranian regime and security forces dominating Iran’s economy, this time have entered into a lucrative $13 billion contract entitled “Iranian Railroad Development Project … Unlike the principals of all international commercial contracts, this one includes an escalator clause that allows for unlimited increases of the agreed amount as deemed necessary! A contract which upon which investigations by Iran’s Green Expert, has proven to be a front for laundering billions of dollars of painstakingly earned national wealth into offshore
“private” bank accounts … Iran’s Green Experts have revealed that over $2.7 billion of the said contract has been embezzled to bribe the Iranian brokers involved in the deal, which with the knowledge and consent of the Chinese Railway Minister, were deposited into the accounts of Iranian nationals in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Macau. According to obtained records, 76 Iranian officials were involved in the deal with China, all of whom having pocketed portions of the colossal bribe … Among those involved in this crime, the following well-known figures have been identified and their cuts determined :

Massoud Khamenei, $50 million
Mostafa Khamenei, $85 million
Maysam Khamenei, $90 million
Hasan Khamenei, $120 million
Ali Akbar Velayati, $12 million (ex-foreign ministry)
Seyed Massoud Mir Kazemi, $11 million (Oil ministry)
Mohammad Taghi Mesbah-Yazdi, $45 million (a key Mullah in Qom)

It is of interest to emphasize that the largest cut was that of Mojtaba Khamenei’s , the exact total of which to follow, upon confirmation. Similarly, the Chinese Minister of Railways has received $75 million of the bribe funds. Additionally, 19 other Chinese officials have collectively received $300 million as bribe and hush money … In recent years, with the growing number of various security and Mafia-like entities such as “Khatamol Anbia” dominating Iran’s economy, the scope of organized corruption surrounding Iran-China trade relations has also grown proportionately, having engulfed all diplomatic, security and legislative units of the country … At the present time, the decisive role that the Supreme Leader’s children, the Revolutionary Guards, and the intelligence officials play in the country’s Mafioso economy has become so utterly transparent and undeniable, that in order to block any related information, they will resort to any criminal act. Besides, having committed such acts, the loyal servants of the regime get rewarded a bonus – above and beyond their regular wages – so as to boost their morale and keep them motivated to stay vigilant in their job of cracking down and trampling the rights of the people
