Iranian websites recently cast light on the allocation of large sums of the country’s 2017 budget to dozens of non-governmental institutions, some of which are linked to the relatives of the Supreme leader.
Iranian news agency, Iran Wire, asserted that around 276 million Toman ($75 million) a year is allocated to about 50 to 60 institutions including “Hikmat Sadra” and “Islam History Institute” managed by Mohamed Khamenei and Hadi Khamenei.
According to the source, a hefty slice of the money was designated to these two institutes linked to brothers of the Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei.
Members of the Iranian parliament received no feedback to their calls to rescind such allowances from the budget.
