SHAFAQNASpokesman for the Iran Guardian Council stressed that most of the Council’s objections to the bill on the Iran’s accession to the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime were on the content of the bill.

Abbas Ali Kadkhodaee said in an interview with the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) on Sunday that the Guardian Council had stated in the CFT bill there were some points that were against the Constitution and religious law, as well as the members of the council, refer that there are uncertainties about the bill.

Asked if most of the deficiencies of the Guardian Council were about content or about form, he answered, “Most of the objections are about content.”

The Guardian Council spokesman replied to the question of whether the Supreme Supervisory Board of Expediency Council had sent its deficiencies to the bill to Guardian Council, and said, “Yes, this board has independently advised us that most of the objections to non- adaptation are in line with the general policy that we referred these objections to the parliament”.

The CFT bill is one of the four FATF bills which include reforms in the money-laundering rules, change in the funding terrorism law and the joining of the country to the Palermo Convention.

On October 7, the Iranian lawmakers voted 143 in favor of the CFT bill, approved it and sent it to the Guardian Council for final approval, IRNA reported.
