Custom Officials in Iran Arrested On Corruption Charges
Iran's judiciary has arrested 18 people, most of them customs officials, for involvement in a smuggling racket that brought in millions of dollars of televisions, DVD players and
hi-fi systems. The state news agency IRNA quotes the head of the judiciary's economic crimes unit, Hamid Reza Movahedi, as saying that 10 of those picked up in the dragnet were customs officials who allegedly took bribes to let in some 11.36 million dollars worth of appliances.
The official said the goods were shipped from Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. He said "some foreign companies have violated customs regulations to illegally smuggle the goods in."
