Washington Times: NCRI reveals IRGC’s commercial enterprises

NCRI – The Washington Times on Thursday published a report about the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps’ (IRGC) extensive multibillion-dollar commercial empire ranging from oil fields to honeybee farms.

The Washington Times reported that the Paris-based National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) has produced " inventory of IRGC’s commercial enterprises".

The Washington Times quoted NCRI : "On several occasions, the IRGC has taken over huge pieces of land in posh areas of major cities, Tehran in particular, and [has used force] to suppress the other government agencies that had claims to these lands".

The report added the NCRI’s "past exposes of Iran’s secret nuclear and other military operations have proved credible".

According to a survey by the Brussels-based International Crisis Group, the IRGC’s engineering arm, known as the Ghorb Khatam, won a string of major contracts from the Ahmadinejad government, including a $1.2 billion deal to build part of the Tehran subway, a $1.3 billion oil pipeline contract, and a no-bid $2.09 billion commission to develop parts of the vast South Pars natural gas field, Washington Times added.
