Senior cleric calls on president to consider CBI independence

Tehran, July 13, IRNA – Tehran's interim Friday prayers leader Hojjatoleslam Mohammad-Hassan Aboutorabi Fard on Friday called on President Hassan Rouhani to make efforts to ensure the independence of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI).

'The way to save the country is that the government does not stretch its hand towards the Central Bank,' Tehran's interim Friday prayers leader Hojjatoleslam Aboutorabi Fard said.

As long as the CBI acts as a fund for supplying the cost of the government and the country, the economic problems and inflation will not be solved, the cleric added.
