Parliamentarian: Capitalistic FATF does not suit Iranian society
Spokesperson of the parliament's commission on national security and foreign policy ,Dr Sayyed Hosein Naghavi Hoseini stressed that FATF is as Leader said a product of Capitalism and global arrogance not suitable for the Iranian society .
Iran press/Iran : Spokesperson of the parliament's commission on national security and foreign policy , Naghavi Hoseini in an exclusive interview with Iran press international news agency described FATF (Financial Action Task Force )as an international group which prescribes the countries all around the world with guidelines .These recommendations as Naghavi says then are going to be ratified in the related parliaments so that all of the FATF recommendations would be met .
He went on to say the some of the FATF 40 recommendations which are considered as the most well known all around the world have been studied in Iran as well and 4 of them have been delivered to Majlis and 2 of them have been ratified by Majlis and they are to be studied by I ran's Guardian Council to be finally approved.
However ,Spokesperson of the parliament's commission on national security and foreign policy further explained that according to Leader's guidelines which has described FATF recommendations as the product of Capitalism and global arrogance, the best thing to do is that parliamentarians themselves create the best version of financial guidelines which suits Iranian society the most, including the positive points and excluding the potential weak points hence those FATF related cases will never be finally approved.
Naghavi also stressed the fact that due to US sanctions being in FATF black list does not really matter .
On June 20,2018 Ayatollah Khamenei in a meeting with Iranian lawmakers and parliamentarians slammed global powers for making conventions that would only serve their own interests and held: "The country members of these conventions have no role in creating them. The global powers prepare these conventions based on their own interests and benefits. Then, allied, submissive, compliance countries enact these conventions in their, countries.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution stressed that Iran has no problem accepting conventions that bring about laws of stability and fighting corruptions while preserving its own independence. His Eminence added: When an independent state, like the Islamic Republic of Iran, rejects them, it is reproached by saying, ‘150 other countries have accepted the agreement, why wouldn’t you accept it?’ Some of these conventions have useful articles; no problem.
The solution is that the Islamic Consultative Assembly (Majlis) itself enact these articles as laws. For instance, a law for combating money laundering or a law for combating terrorism can be enacted. We should not accept things when we don’t know their eventual consequences, while we know the potential problems, for the sake of some positive aspects."
