A regime broker: Plunderer institutions have political power and a special backing that circumvents the law

On the morning of Wednesday June 21, thousands of victims of financial institutions belonging to the Revolutionary Guards, the Basij Organization, the Police and the Judiciary in Tehran, Mashhad, Ahvaz, Babol, Abhar, Ardebil and Rasht staged rallies.

In Tehran, at least 3000 depositors of the Caspian Foundation gathered in front of the office of Rouhani. The protesters chanted on the march: "The state of moderation, has emptied the pockets of people", "Head of the central bank, deceiving people is enough", "Iran has become thief house", "Our people are wary, they hate the liar", "Supporting the thieves is betrayal to the Quran", "Death to the thief ".

In Tehran, at the same time, a number of staff of the regime's aviation organization, whose deposits were plundered in order to build houses, gathered in front of the government building at Mehrabad airport.

In Ahvaz, the looted people blocked the Sa’at Square street toward the University Square. They chanted: "If our problem is not solved, Ahvaz will rise". Police agents with armored vehicles entered the square to disperse the protesters.

In Mashhad, the protesters gathered in front of the city's court and chanted: "Or Hojjat Ibn al-Hassan (12th Imam), uproot the oppression," "This undeserved Seif must be executed."

The day before, the looted people protested in Shiraz, Ahvaz, Mashhad, Masjed Soleiman, Omidieh and Parsabad.

Ahmad Hatami Yazdi, a financial expert of the regime, in response to the massive rally of the victims, said: "Our future situation will be very severe," adding, "Those who launched these institutions had a certain political power and a certain backing that could circumvent the law, not implement it, create branches without a license throughout Iran and take deposits from the people ... One of the first unlawful establishments that was formed was Ghavamin's institution, affiliated with the police. The central bank would say if we wanted to stop this, we would have to close the police force. "Mizan" is affiliated to some of the Judiciary personnel in Mashhad. There are all kinds of power centers in the country that do not respect the law, they do not count the law an iota... They all are created with the inappropriate political support and continue to exist with the same protections. They hanged the Caspian sign over their heads as the judiciary supported it, but it is not unlikely that the banks would suffer this disaster in two or three years. Our future situation will be very severe (Government news network – June 20). This government official had already admitted that "behind these financial and credit institutions there are great powers. Powers that can change the decisions of the monetryy and credit council, if needed. (Economics News - May 20).
