Iran MP Hossein Naqvi al-Hussaini, said that it is ready to ask for Parliamentary investigation against Hossein Fereydoun, brother of Hassan Rouhani and his advisor. Hossein is accused to have pushed for the nomination of the head of Refah Bank. The person recommended by Hossein Fereydoun, was fired after the explosion of the “salary scandal” (to know more read the article of al Monitor).

The Iranian Parliament could open an investigation thanks to the article 90 of the Iranian Constitution, which puts the Parliament in charge of investigating complaints made about the operation of the Parliament (Majlis), the Executive, and the Judiciary. A Commission – appointed by Iran’s Parliament – governs this process (Iran Human Rights Documentation Center).
