MNA – The Guardian Council has returned the bill on Iran’s accession to the convention against the funding of terrorism (CFT) to Parliament for further amendments, the Council’s spokesman said on Sunday.
The spokesman for the Guardian Council, Abbasali Kadkhodaei, wrote in a tweet on Sunday that the Council has found flaws and ambiguities with a bill on Iran’s accession to the International Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism, also known as Terrorist Financing Convention.
The bill was approved by Iran’s Parliament on October 7 as part of efforts to oblige the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to remove the country from its blacklist.
The bill was submitted to the Guardian Council to either pass it into law or suggest amendments and sent it back to the lawmakers for reconsideration.
According to Kadkhodaei, the Guardian Council has found some instances that were either against Iran’s Islamic law (Sharia) and Constitution, or contained ambiguities.
He told Mehr News correspondent that the Council has found fault with the bill in over 20 instances.
The Parliament is now tasked with making the necessary amendments to the bill in order to gain the Guardian Council’s approval.
