Although Iran’s economy is crippled with high inflation at more than 25% and unemployment more than 30% with millions living at or below poverty line plus an on going economic embargo, Khamenei and his inner circle has managed to accumulate billions of dollars of Iranian people’s money and plundering of Iran’s wealth for their own benefit. No one truly knows the extends of his wealth, but the information in this blog shows he has done very well for himself and his family.
Aside from the 22 bilion dollars cash, 10 billion dollars is in the following bank accounts:
1 billion dollars in Russia
1 bilion dollars in Syria
1 bilion dollars in China
1 bilion dollars in Venezuela
2 billion dollars in South Africa
2 billion dollars in London
2 billion dollars in other countries
Aside from 22 billion dollars cash and 10 billion in foreign accounts, his other assets are:
4 billion dollars as described below:
2 billion dollars in stocks in world markets
1 billion dollars in South Africa
500 million dollars in Syria
500 million dollars in Venezuela
Where did these billions come from?
30 billion dollars out of commission on sale of oil
2 billion dollars in land dealings
6 billion dollars in arms dealings
10 billion dollars has been directly paid to Khamenei by Ahmadinejad's government
Mr. Khamenei's and his familie's total wealth: 36 Billion Dollars
Mr. Khamenei's wealth: 30 Billion Dollars
His family's wealth: 6 Bilion Dollars
The rest of the cash: 3.5 Billion Dollars out of wihc 1.5 Bilion dollars is in the form of diamonds and one billion dollars is in the form of gold. There is also a billion dollars in dollar bills.
Khamenei, in order to control his business, keeps people in some positions for a long time. For example Majid Hedayat-zadeh has been the person responsible for sale of Iran's oil for the past 30 years (he was changed last year because Nourizadeh exposed his name).
Mr. Souri is responsible for the transport of Iran's oil and he has been on the job for 30 years.
Mr. Khamenei had appointed these two people in 1980. At one point Rafsanjani, Khatami and Ahmadinejad each had tried to change them but Khamenei did not approve of the change. This is how these two people worked with Khamenei's office: Hedaya-zadeh would sell the oil and Souri would transport them and the commission for this transaction would go into Khamenei's account. In the past 30 years Iran has sold about 700 Billion dollars worth of oil and the commission for the sale and transport for this has gone into Khamenei's account. The third person who entered the oil ministry for this affair is his brother Hassan Khamenei who was at previously appointed as the minister of Islamic Guidance (vezarat Ershad) and he was in charge of censorship. He later entered the petroleum ministry to control Khamenei's interests.
