Below four videos about the huge protest held in Tehran, few days ago: from all Iran arrived in the capital thousands of people, in order to protest against the corruption of the financial institutions, especially the one connected to IRGC and Hezbollah. People chanted slogans against the regime, against the Central Bank, against Rouhani and also against the Iranian presence in Syria.

The website Saham News revealed that the Iranian security forces surrounded the residence of former President Khatami, forbidding him to leave his house. Few hours after the deployment, the security forces left the area, permitting to Khatami to go out. In any case, this news is very important, because could mean that – in any moment in the next future – the regime could decide for put Khatami under house arrest, like it happened in February 2011 to Mousavi and Karroubi. The action of the security forces arrived after the decision of the Iranian magistrature to forbid to Khamenei the possibility to take part to public events for three months. More interesting, the fact happened even if few days ago, for the first time, Khatami has expressed his support to IRGC, after the speech of Trump
In a rare move, the Italian Foreign Minister Alfano criticized Iran, regarding the respect of the nuclear deal. Speaking to the press agency ANSA, Alfano said that – despite Tehran did not violate the agreement – the missile tests represent a “violation of the spirit of the JCPOA”. His words arrive after the strong support to the deal given by Federica Mogherini and by the Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni. The words of Alfano, probably, are the effect of the joint declaration signed by UK, France and Germany on October 13, in which the three European countries expressed “concerns about Iran’s ballistic missile programme and regional activities that also affect our European security interests”. More: Italy is going toward the new election, and maybe Alfano – who runs a centrist party, allied with the left – wants to take a personal distance from the Government unquestioned support to the Iranian nuclear deal.

The Iranian website Doletbahar.com, close to Ahmadinejad, revealed that the in area of the resident of the former President, were deployed members of the security forces and the intelligence. The website did not give more information, at least for the moment. In the meantime, from the same website, Ahmadinejad published a special message to the IRGC, after the speech of US President Trump. In his message, Ahmadinejad praised the Revolutionary Guards, and their attitude to sacrifices and martyrdom.
An intelligence report published on the website of the Interior Ministry of the German Lander of North Rine-Westphalia, revealed that – in 2016 – Iran has tried to acquire illegal nuclear technology 32 times only in this region. Tehran tried to overcome the rules, using front companies based in countries like United Arab Emirates, Turkey and China.
The report also revealed that the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence – MOIS – has focused its activity in Germany following the actions of the Iranian opposition’s groups, especially the Mojahedin-e Khalq, also known as MeK.

An Iranian website, Amadnews.org, published two documents in which it is written that Zahara Larijani, the daughter of Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani – head of Iranian Judiciary system – was a spy. In the documents it is written that Zahara, a supporter of the Green Wave Movement, has passed (for more than two years) important documents to the embassies of UK, New Zealand and Italy. Because of this reason, Zahara was arrested by the IRGC Intelligence division, and questioned about the details of her relations with foreign embassies (especially the relations with UK). It seems that this is also the reason of the regime’s intention to close the social network Telegram: despite the requests, Telegram refused to close a pro-Green Wave channels, which has also published information about the Zahara Larijani.
Clearly, all the Iranian political establishment denied the news, and called all the story a “big lie”. The information was also denied by the Intelligence Minister Alawi and the head of IRGC Intelligence Division, Hossein Taib.
This is the second big scandal for Ayatollah Larijani: one year ago he was accused by a reformist journalist of “financial corruption”, for having 63 personal accounts in different banks.
Iranian media reported that the brother of the Vice President Eshaq Jahangiri was arrested. Mehdi Jahangiri, a businessman, is accused of financial corruption. He is the head of the Iranian Tourism Finance Group and serves also as Vice President of the Tehran Chamber of Commerce. On July 2017, with similar charges, was arrested the brother of President Rouhani, Hossein Fereydoun.

The US think tank Foundation for Defense Democracy (FDD), has published a report about who finances the Lebanese terrorist organization Hezbollah. The firs financer, as well known, is Iran, which gives around $ 800 million every year. Another financer is Venezuela, who facilitates the drug trafficking of Hezbollah, supported also by Shia communities in America Latina. But, between who gave money to the Party of God, there is also Qatar, who gave to Hezbollah $ 300 million in 2009. FDD denounces that Hezbollah used the Lebanese bank system for its money laundering, especially to “clean” the money received from the drug trafficking.
