Officials who were responsible for creating tension in the foreign currency market arrested

Tuesday, 18 June 2013

Security official: Officials who were behind the creation of tension in the foreign currency market in Iran by illegally issuing and stockpiling foreign currency in order to harm the Iranian economy were arrested. According to the charges, this group was affiliated with Fitna officials and in order to achieve its goals, many companies acted to harm the Iranian economy parallel to the worsening sanctions against Iran. According to an Iranian security source, “The fingerprints of European espionage agencies are all over this case, and there is evidence of visas having been obtained for group members from the French embassy in Tehran. The group would call a person known as Ardashir Amir Arjoumand, senior advisor to one of the Fitna leaders, who defected from Iran with the help of the Munafiqeen organization (a derogatory phrase for Mujahedeen-e Khalq). The brother is one of the Munafiqueen leaders in France and serves as a liaison between the Munafiqeen and the DST (Direction de la Surveillance du Territoire - France’s internal security service).
