Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 25 /Trend S. Isayev, T. Jafarov/
Iran's Judiciary Spokesman and Attorney General Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei said he sent a letter to the country's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, asking to provide the names of people who have been in big debts to the local banks, Fars reported.
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.
"It is expected, that the names of these people would be submitted to the judiciary for legal proceedings," Mohseni-Ejei noted.
He added, that previously, the Central Bank of Iran has also been contacted to provide the name of a man, who had a debt of some $8 million, and did not return it in time. The bank has not yet responded to the judiciary request.
