NCRI - The domestic situation in Iran is worsening as the weeks go by. What kicked it all off was the protests that started at the end of December last year. The people took to the streets across the whole country, fed up with the dire economic situation in the country that was making the most basic of essential items unaffordable to much of the population. The discontent spread rapidly and small protests turned into nationwide anti-government demonstrations. They started to call for an end to the regime’s rule, certain – now more than ever – that regime change is long overdue.
NCRI - The head of the Central Bank of Iran, Valiollah Seif, recently claimed that illegal stakeholders make it hard to reform Iran's economy, but why is the Iranian Regime not attempting to push back against these corrupt networks?
Iran has been besieged by nationwide anti-regime protests that highlighted systematic corruption, amongst other things, as their problem with the Iranian Regime, and as such corruption became a talking point.
