Head of Iran's Cyber Police (FATA) Brigadier General Seyed Kamal Hadianfar said that FATA is ready to give assistance over the challenge of money laundering.

Iran PressIran news: Head of Iran's Cyber Police (FATA) Brigadier General Seyed Kamal Hadianfar said: "We declared earlier to the interior ministry that we are ready to give some help and assistance to them in combating money laundering." 

According to Iran press report, General Hadianfar added: "Based on the law passed in 2007 for combating money laundering, the ministry of economy and finance has been given the responsibility for oversight and monitoring of these sort of economic activities but failed to carry out its' duty properly."

Head of Iran's Cyber Police stated, "First of all, I have to say that the fraud looks very much like gambling, because no gold coins or jewelry have been traded between people, with individuals just calculated their losses and profits." 

"With the coordination which we had with public prosecutor of Tehran, as far as oversight and monitoring of companies' activities was concerned, we made a proposal that whoever, either governmental department or non-governmental organization, had issued the licenses and permits, is responsible for the fraud perpetrated by the company" he said.

"In fact, the local authorities in different towns who had issued the permits, have failed in their oversight of the company," General Hadianfar concluded.
