Daily Trust - - INTERNATIONAL -

Ira­nian au­thor­i­ties have ar­rested 67 peo­ple in a drive against fi­nan­cial crime, the ju­di­ciary said on Sun­day, as the coun­try faces re­newed U.S. sanc­tions and a pub­lic out­cry against prof­i­teer­ing cor­rup­tion.

“Sixty seven sus­pects have been ar­rested, some of whom were re­leased on bail, and more than 100 peo­ple in­clud­ing and gov­ern­ment em­ploy­ees and of­fi­cials, as well as pri­vate em­ploy­ees and oth­ers have been given travel bans,” ju­di­ciary spokesman Gho­lamhos­sein Mohseni Ejei said.
