TEHRAN, Oct. 11–Tabriz MP Mohammad Hossein Farhangi on Tuesday castigated the MPs for their carelessness in investigating cases assigned to them.
Addressing an open Majlis session, he said, “We have seen that committees are formed for investigating the performances of the judiciary and Oil Ministry, which begin activities but gradually lose momentum and become careless.“
The lawmaker noted that this week one of the influential members of one of these committees resigned, ISNA reported.
“Therefore, we expect Majlis Presiding Board to pay special attention to the effective fulfillment of such investigations,“ he said.
Majlis Speaker Gholamali Haddad-Adel said in response, “The presiding board is sensitive to the issue of investigations. This issue was, indeed, on the agenda of the board’s recent meeting. Concerns were expressed that the legislators engage in investigations very seriously at the beginning, but then they gradually lose interest. The board has assigned a group within the board to hold talks with the committees in charge of investigationsÉto find what is really going on.“
