Cleric: Corruption is leprosy to every system

July 21, 2018

TEHRAN – Tehran Friday prayer leader Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami called on the authorities to intensify fight against corruption, saying corrupt individuals, whoever they are, “must be dealt with decisively”.

“Corruption is leprosy to every establishment,” Khatami told worshippers in Tehran, saying corruption in the administrative system of the Shah regime led to its downfall.

The cleric further said the worst kind of corruption is to circumvent the law by doing something illegal and providing a legal cover for it.
