Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad today said he did not receive any request from the Judiciary Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, Fars reported.

"We have not received such requests," Ahmadinejad told journalists.

Judiciary Spokesman Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei said yesterday that he sent a request to Ahmadinejad to provide the names of 300 people, who according to Ahmadinejad, "own 60 percent of country's wealth".

In mid-December, Ahmadinejad made a statement, that has led to Attorney General sending him the letter.

"There are 300 people in the country who have put 60 percent of the country's money in their pockets and do not return it," Ahmadinejad stated then, adding that there are certain people in the country, that only think about themselves.

Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei said in a letter addressed to Ahmadinejad, he asked him to provide the names of each of those 300 people to the judiciary for investigation.
