Where's my home?

"Homeless" protest

In 2002 a company called "Negin Gharb" collected deposits form people for the purchase of units in a housing project near Karaj. To this date the units have not been delivered. Those who were ripped off gathered in front of the judiciary on Vali Asr Blvd in Tehran to demand justice.

Negin Gharb is a private company.  Why would the Iranian government be partner of such a scam business?  The Iranian government has all the money in the world with the oil revenues.  And the green movement is a member of the current government.  Will the economy in Iran get worse in the future?  Yes.  The U.S.A. is in an economic depression.  The rest of the world is worse off than the U.S.A. 

Will there be more protests in the future in Iran?  Yes.  More people will be scammed by people trying to cheat people.

As long as the Iranian judiciary does its job everything will continue as usual.

The best case scenario is that the Negin Gharb's scam project chief executive officer will be convicted and executed by firing squad or hanged.  The money is probably all spent or stored in a swiss bank account.  The people who purchased units will probably never get their money back.  That is what usually happens in Iran.

Maybe the first but not the last

by Shifteh Ansari on

Over the coming months and year, after IRI further cuts off its fuel subsidies, allowing the inflation rate to shoot skywards, there will be more and more street protests.

One of the biggest gripes of the people who are protesting Negin Gharb's scam project is that government authorities not only supported and partnered with him during the rip-off, they have been protecting him now with his trial and sentencing and court procedures.

Protests like this will only increase as the economy gets even worse and Iranians become vocal in their protests, thanks to Green Movement.
