Parl. to review solutions to CFT flaws today

MNA – Iranian lawmakers will review the potential solutions to the flaws in the bill on Iran’s accession to the convention against the funding of terrorism (CFT), which have been pointed out by the Guardian Council.

The lawmakers are set to look into the matter during the Parliament’s open session today (Tue.) to discover appropriate legal and political solutions to address the flaws.

Iran’s Parliament ratified the bill in early October, as part of efforts to oblige the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to remove the country from its blacklist, and submitted it to the Guardian Council for further consideration. The Council rejected the bill on November 4, on the basis of having found a series of faults with it, which, according to its spokesman Abbasali Kadkhodaei, were either ambiguous or ran counter to the country’s Shari’ah and the Constitutional law.

According to Ardashir Noorian, the head of the Defense Committee of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission at the Parliament, a special workgroup has been formed by the Commission to find solutions to the problems with the CFT.

Reportedly, the commision will address all the 22 flaws during today’s open session.
