Rouhani’s Government Struggling With A New Scandal: Illegal Car Imports

Nearly 6,000 foreign-made vehicles were illegally ordered between July 19 and December 30, 2017, while the Industry Ministry’s official website for registration of vehicle import requests was hacked and not functioning at the time.

In the meantime, Iran’s Central Bank on July 1 published the names of 1,500 companies and individuals who received millions of dollars at the government rate of 42,000 rials and mostly offered their goods at the free market rate, which is almost double (on the free market, one dollar is offered for 83,000 rials).

The Iranian regime’s attempt for bombing amongst innocent people in France is exactly similar to ISIS operations; however, after one of its diplomat-terrorist and other terrorists were arrested while carrying explosives, it is trying to pretend being away from ISIS with these executions at this specific juncture.
