Multi-million Dollar embezzlement cases within the Ministry of Guidance & Enlightenment

Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzzi
While various gangs within the regime, furiously battle each other, Ahmadinejad's own site FARDA (named as such in order to confuse people with Radio Farda which is the Persian Broadcast of Radio Free Europe) wrote: "A reliable source in the Ministry of Islamic Guidance and Enlightenment has exposed the $150 million payments made to individuals with various alibis during the last days of the ex-Minister of Guidance, Ahmad Masjed-Jaamehii. In recent weeks many out-of-the-ordinary monies were paid out from the coffers of this ministry. For example during Masjed-Jaamehii's last days in office, a payment of $100,000 was made to someone for assembling their personal library!"

It is important to say that vis a vis this $100,000 payment, documents, approvals and signatures were necessary that was all organized within one day, which is unheard of in the history of this Ministry.
