The Iranian Regime is deeply divided over financial transparency bills to combat terrorism financing and prevent money laundering that the country needs to pass in order to improve Iran’s global financial status.
On Sunday, the Iranian parliament made minor amendments to the Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT) bill, which they had already passed, to address the 22 problems raised by the Guardian Council and sent it to the Expediency Council for final approval. However, the Expediency Council, which is supposed to resolve conflicts between the Parliament and the Guardian Council, did not see fit to pass it and instead referred the bill to specialised commissions.
