TEHRAN (Dispatches) – Iran’s Prosecutor General Muhammad Jafar Montazeri on Wednesday issued a stern warning to those behind recent fluctuations in the currency market, saying they will face the consequences if they do not stop “betraying the nation”.
“Their actions are helping the enemy and disrupting Iran’s economy and security of the nation,” he deplored.
Montazeri said security and intelligence forces will soon catch them if they do not stop their practices.
“It is immoral to gather assets amid the market turmoil and cooperate with the U.S.,” he added.
The prosecutor general described those behind steep rises in the prices of goods and foreign currencies as the “fifth column” of the enemies, warned them to repent before they are brought to justice.
The new governor of the Central Bank of Iran, Abdolnaser Hemmati, on Monday attributed the currency market volatility to the enemies, saying they were out to destroy the country’s assets and instill disappointment among the public.
Tehran police chief General Hossein Rahimi said 35 people had been arrested in recent days for disrupting the forex and gold coins market.  
Earlier this month, Rahimi said police had arrested a man and his accomplices for collecting two tonnes of gold coins over several months in order to manipulate the market.
“The forces of the three branches of power and the law enforcement are determined to deal with the disrupters of the currency and coin market,” he said on Tuesday.
He said dealers are considered among the main agents of the turmoil, who are exacerbating the market volatility through fixing prices. “They have been served the final warning to stop their fraudulent maneuvers on the market,” Rahimi said.
