Iranian of the day

Kambiz Foroohar
Winner: FINANCIAL STORY OF THE YEAR
Foreign Press Association Media Awards, 23 November 2004
Story: THE FAMILY THAT RUNS IRAN (Bloomberg Markets)

An original story on a strategically important country which major western companies find increasingly intriguing. Focusing on the network and the influence of the powerful Rafsanjani family, this report sheds light on the corruption of the establishment (or a part of it) and the opaque procedures that foreign countries have to undergo to invest in Iran. Foroohar interviewed many players, including the Rafsanjani family, and observers from both inside the country and abroad to gather wide- ranging information.

Also see: Garden variety: An Iranian teaches an American a lesson about journalism. The film skips the Iranian part. The movie "Shattered Glass" (2003) was based on Kambiz's investigative reporting.
