Ex-Iranian MP claims fledgling company enjoys rent to secure huge import contract

A former Iranian lawmaker has informed President Ebrahim Raisi of an alleged “rent” that enabled a fledgling company to import 13 million tons of basic goods such as wheat, maize, barley, rice, oil and red and white meat through a contract with a completely confidential classification.

Ahmad Tavakoli said the company won this contract without observing due formalities that had no background experience in the imports of basic goods. The former MP described this “rent” as “unprecedented”.

Tavakli claimed that this company has not imported a single ton of such goods throughout its short life and now it wants to import 13 million tons of them with state funds and Central Bank currency.

He further charged that this contract is completely confidential so that the vague and discriminatory process is hidden from the media.

The administration of President Ebrahim Raisi has yet to react to the allegations.
