The Iranian MP Ahmad Tavakoli, said that the penalties against the crime of bank fraud are not working. Because of this, the Majlis – the Iranian Parliament – is considering the adoption of a new legislation, in which it will be considered also the application of the death penalty against the offenders. The words of Tavakoli, arrived in the same moment in which the International Community – and the United Nations – are asking to the Iranian officials to change the penal code, in order to reduce the high rate of death penalties daily executed inside the Islamic Republic.
