The Iranian treasury has denied that it is missing $4 billion in oil revenues as reported by the parliament yesterday, Fars reports.
Gholamreza Amin Raftari, the general director of the treasury, said all the oil revenues were deposited as legally mandated.

Yesterday, the Majlis issued a report saying the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) has taken $4 billion in revenues that should have been deposited in the treasury. According to the report, the treasury should have received $6.4 billion of oil revenues, but only $2.4 billion have been deposited.
The report has given the ministry a week to pay the $2 billion in oil revenues.
If the executive branch fails to return the money, the Majlis will refer the matter to the judiciary.
