US Congress orders Treasury to investigate Iranian leaders’ wealth

Published: Updated:

The US Senate Committee on Finance in Congress has ordered the US Department of the Treasury to reveal how Iran’s Supreme Leader Khamenei and 80 other senior Iranian officials and Revolutionary Guard commanders obtained their wealth.

The department was also asked to determine the real numbers these riches stand at and how they were invested and employed.

The US House of Representatives said the committee had approved a resolution requiring the Treasury to implement the “Iranian Leadership Asset Transparency Act.”
