"The call made seven years ago to heads of three branches of power to seriously and strongly fight economic corruption is still in effect. The judiciary has a key and heavy duty of administering justice," said Ayatollah Khamenei in an address to the Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi and a group of judicial officials and judges on Wednesday.

Rafsanjani could teach American politicians a thing or two.

Senator Harry Reid's real estate deal, Senator Chris Dod's Countrywide VIP preference on his multiple house loans and Congressman Jefferson'g 90,000 in the refrigerator appear to be peanuts compared to the Rafsanjani pistacio nuts.

 Did you see that the number one importer of Iranian pistacio nuts is Israel?  Rafsanjani sells pistacios to the enemy.  I think it's kinda funny.

He should start with Akbar rafsanjani's own son Mehdi Rafsanjani

In 1997, his son Mehdi Hashemi Rafsanjani, the head of state-owned Gaz Iran Company, has reportedly received a €60,000,000 ($80,000,000) bribe from Total oil company, in order for Total to get a favorable contract in PSEEZ gas fields[31]. [1]

The bribery which has recently come to public attention, has been denied by Mehdi Hashemi Rafsanjani , and he has threatened the newspapers that he will legally prosecute those which publish this incident. The CEO of Total, Christophe de Margerie, is currently under investigation in France with regards to this incident but Mehdi Hashemi Rafsanjani is living in Iran due his father's power in this country.[32]
