The IRGC is the main organization that is systematically involved in corruption, plundering, and embezzlements. A considerable sum of the IRGC’s budget is obtained through these ways. In addition to IRGC’s general plundering and embezzlements to gain its needed budget for terrorism and oppression, its personnel and elements also use different methods to fill their own pockets.

Who is Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, the new speaker of Iran’s parliament?
In the current circumstances, while the mullahs’ regime is facing hard economic, social, and political crises, regime Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei sees no other option than rely on his hand-picked inner circles to occupy key positions of power. Disqualifying the so-called reformist candidates for the recent parliamentary elections, which had the lowest turnout in the history of elections in the Iranian regime, had no aim but appointing trustworthy officials such as Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf as the new Speaker of the Majlis.
Previously, in appointing Ebrahim Raisi, a key player in the execution of Iranian dissidents, as head of Iran’s judiciary, Khamenei had shown he needs known criminals to maintain his power as his regime enters its final stages.
Mohammad Bagher Ghalibaf, who is also a former commander of the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) and State Security Forces, has repeatedly shown his loyalty to Khamenei through his crimes against the Iranian people. Ghalibaf also ran for presidency on three occasions.
