Sadegh Larijani, Head of the Judiciary told a meeting of judiciary officials: "In our fight against economic corruption, there are rumors of opposition from certain individuals which unfortunately have also gotten into the media with amateur coverage."

Larijani maintained: "The judiciary will never allow people to take possession of public property and the treasury for themselves and their children through cheating and falsifying documents."

These comments come at a time when Elias Naderan, an Iranian MP has accused Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's vice-president, Mohammadreza Rahimi of running a corruption ring.

Yesterday Naderan in a meeting with a group of university students said: "In government meetings it has been announced that whoever speaks out against Mr. Rahimi will be dealt with."

He once more contended that Rahimi is a liar and his credentials are also fabricated; therefore, he is unfit for his position in the government.

Rahimi denies all these accusations and claims that he has always been a conscientious protector of public treasury.
