Iran Leader Calls for Serious Fight against Corruption among Officials

Leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called for a serious fight against corrupt officials within the Islamic Establishment, stressing that people are angry about corruption and discrimination.

Addressing a group of Iran Air Force commanders and personnel in Tehran on Thursday, the Leader said people are complaining about corruption and discrimination.

“People tolerate many of problems, but they don’t like corruption and are complaining about discrimination,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

“These complaints must be seriously pursued by the government, the Judiciary, and the Parliament,” he added.

Addressing a group of navy commanders in Tehran on Thursday, the Leader said people are complaining about corruption and discrimination.

“People tolerate many of problems, but they are complaining about corruption and discrimination,” Ayatollah Khamenei added.

“These complaints must be seriously pursued by the government, the Judiciary, and the Parliament,” he added.

“Fight against cruelty and corruption is one of the ways to realize social justice,” he noted, adding, however, that such fight is very difficult.

“As I said a few years ago, corruption is like the mythical dragon with seven heads, which is not easy to kill, but it must be destroyed,” the Leader noted.

Ayatollah Khamenei stressed that fight against cruelty and corruption among state officials must be harsher and more serious than other cases, and all officials and executives must pay attention to this fight.

The Leader further noted that enemies are restoring to any means at their disposal, including cyberspace and sanctions, to undermine the Iranian nation’s faith in the 1979 Islamic Revolution.

The enemy is bent on “preventing the Revolution’s continuation and perseverance; it uses any means at its disposal” to achieve that goal, the Leader said.

Ayatollah Khamenei noted that apart from the cyberspace, the enemy resorts to sanctions to impact the Iranian people’s lives, but they have so far failed to weaken their faith in the Revolution as the nation has remained vigilant in the face of such schemes.

Despite all the enmities, the Islamic Revolution is “alive and growing,” Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.

The Leader drew attention to the upcoming nationwide rallies marking the 39th anniversary of the Revolution, saying there will be a stronger turnout this year against the backdrop of recent hostile positions of US officials against the Islamic Republic.

“Given the nonsense statements by some US officials, the [Iranian] people feel that the enemy is waiting in ambush for aggression and hostility,” Ayatollah Khamenei said. “This year, the participation of people will be more vigorous than ever and everyone will take part, God willing.”
