Reports from the PMOI network inside Iran suggest that high-ranking officials in the IRGC are heavily investing to start new companies and are purchasing land to build factories in Gilan Province, northern Iran. In the coming months, the people in question will ask family members to use confiscated manufacturing installations from the monarchy-era, and together with the purchased property, to construct the new plants.
Just recently, the oil production factory in Behshar and Pars Mino in Gilan were documented under the name of two IRGC officers.

According to these sources, these actions also serve as a motive for the new presidential election in June.
