Tehran (IP) - The Guardian Council's Spokesman elaborated on the examination of a plan of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), saying the crime and punishment in the plan were not proportionate.

Iran PressIran news: In his weekly press conference on Saturday, Hadi Tahan-Nazif said in response to Iran Press question about the plan of the CBI: "This plan took many meetings for examination because it was voluminous."

Tahan-Nazif noted that the main ambiguities of the plan were that extensive powers were given to the members of the Central Bank, which the council considered to be contrary to the principles of the constitution.

As the other problem with the plan, the spokesman said that to resolve the banking disputes, the relevant officials introduced an authority outside of the judicial system, which was found to be contrary to the principles of the constitution.

Still, he noted that disproportionate punishments were foreseen, which were considered heavy in some places, stating that the disproportion between the crime and the punishment was known to be contrary to the fair judicial process.

"Another problem with the plan was that it was coast consuming for the administration, being objected to by the Guardian Council," he added.

The Spokesman of the Guardian Council also told reporters about the investigation of trade cooperation of the Caspian Sea littoral countries.

Hadi Tahan-Nazif told the reporters the bill was not considered to be against Iranian law, but there were some non-Persian words applied in it that should be corrected.

Tahan-Nazif also talked about the bill on the cooperation of Iran and UNESCO to establish a training and research center for risk management and earthquake endurance. 

He said the bill was not considered in disagreement with the country's constitution. 

The next bill he talked about was the attachment of the Iranian administration to the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), where some problems were found including ambiguity in the Islamic Republic's commitments to its membership in the SCO.

The spokesman said that the parliament was informed of the problems. 

As with the charters, he said that 7 ones were examined in the Guardian Council's sessions.

One of the charters was one about the free trade-industrial zones of Inche Boroun, Bushehr, Mehran, Ghasr Shireen, Ardabil, Sistan and Baluchestan, Baneh, and Marivan. 

He said there were some problems with the charter but the administration corrected them, so they were considered not to be at odds with the law.
