Manama: The Panama Papers have revealed that former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is involved in money laundering and tax evasion, according to a report in Lebanese newspaper Janoubia.

Iranian officials condemned the documents as a “Western conspiracy” against the Islamic republic instead of even questioning those named in the exposé, the report said.

Some parties at the Revolutionary Guard Corps, who still owe allegiance to Nejad, dismissed the accusations as baseless claims that aimed to tarnish the country’s reputation and its “ascetic” president.

Also, the Panama Papers unveiled that a large number of Iranian oil companies run by the Revolutionary Guard Corps are authorised to sell oil in the name of Ahmedinejad, our sister paper Akhbar Al Khaleej quoted the report as saying.
