CBI’s dismissed deputy-governor for currency arrested

TEHRAN, Aug. 05 (MNA) – the Spokesperson of the Judiciary Branch Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said that Seyyed Ahmad Araghchi, the recently sacked CBI’s Deputy-Governor for Currency, has been arrested.

“Continuing the follow-up for the dossier of the disruptors of the currency market and the country’s monetary system, three files were completed and sent to the court and the trial sessions will soon be held,” said the Spokesperson of the Judiciary Branch Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei on Sunday.

The Iranian judiciary official recounted that some other suspects were sued and arrested. “One of them is Seyyed Ahmad Araghchi, the CBI’s Deputy-Governor for Currency, who I have heard that been dismissed very recently.”

The Iranian media relayed on Saturday some news on rumors speculating that newly-appointed Governor of CBI (the Central Bank of Iran), Abdolnaser Hemmati, dismissed Araghchi. On the other hand, Mehr News Agency cited an informed source saying that “the decision is very probable and not yet finalized”.

“Also a government clerk working for one of the vice-presidents and four other brokers who had illegal activities in this regard were arrested today,” said Mohseni Ejei on Sunday.
