Iran, June 13. 2019 - Morteza Alviri, a member of Tehran’s City Council, shed light into cases of corruptions by former Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) chief Mohamad Ali Jafari and current IRGC Quds Forces commander Qassem Soleimani.
"12 serious and proven financial crimes pertained to the wives of Soleimani and Jafari were sent to the judiciary, but there have been no results. The prosecutor never asked for any explanation, yet when a couple of eight-year-old girls perform in an all-women’s ceremony, [former Tehran Mayor Mohammad] Najafi was awakened at midnight and held accountable for that performance,” Alviri said during a conference. Alviri had previously served three terms as Majlis (parliament) member and mayor of the Iranian capital.
Aliviri became the mayor of Tehran after Gholamhussain Karbaschi resigned back in 2000 and was tried for corruption. Alviri resigned in 2005 and was tried due to his involvement in corruption, which was revealed by members of a rival faction in the regime.
