According to him, government officials have used the names of homeless people as the shareholders of front companies to receive millions of dollars funds allocated to the homeless.
“One of the Investment Bank offenses is issuing guarantees worth millions of dollars apparently for homeless such that 38 guarantees worth of 500 billion Tomans ($15.5 million dollars) has been issued to front companies and homeless people as the shareholders,” Dowlatâbâdi said.
Tehran’s prosecutor also revealed financial corruption of the regime officials plundering 8000 billion Tomans ($24.8 billion dollars) of the Teachers and Educators Reserve Fund.

He said: “Of the $24.8 billion dollars Investment Bank’s loan, 10 people received $12.4 billion dollars and also former managers of Investment Bank, in their appraisal, assessed some properties fourteen times their actual price and possessed them.”
