Iran: Shocking Remarks on Drug Addictions Divulge Rouhani Lies
Over two years after coming into office, Iranian president Hassan Rouhani continues to claim of reform, moderation and change. However, listening to his deputy police chief making some eye-opening and troubling remarks sheds some light on the truth inside Iran. The age of drug addiction dropping, more women becoming drug addicts, the prisons are full and 70 to 80% of all prisoners are addicted to drugs are just a few to mention.
This is not the first time that Iranian authorities speak out about the misery of drug addiction they are entangled with. Hamid Saremi*, the general director of the research and education staff at IDHC, reported that of the 45 per cent addicted women under the age of 30, 25 per cent of those are between the ages of 20 and 30, and half are between 15 and 19.Unfortunately drug abuse is opening its way and grasping students from elementary to university.
Momeni, deputy commander of Iran’s police, attempted to boast about discovering more than 300 tons of narcotics and saying this is a 20% increase. However, failed to mention the fact that the regime’s own Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) is the main element behind the import and export of narcotics into the country, distributing it amongst the youth and prisoners, and making a fortune by exporting it abroad.
In his remarks Iran’s deputy police chief couldn’t avoid admitting all the country’s prisons are full, yet another sign of increasing crackdown and cementing a climate of fear throughout Iran under Rouhani’s watch.
When your deputy police chief goes on to easily say 70 to 80% of the country’s prisoners are addicted, one certainly reaches this conclusion that things are not managed properly from the top down, and there corrupt hands behind all this. Rouhani can no longer of receiving a failing state, as he has been on the throne for more than two years now and no significant changes can be seen made inside Iran.
“The age of drug addiction has decreased in comparison to previous years… drug addiction has also risen amongst women in comparison to the past,” Momeni said, adding “I believe the reason behind all this should be searched for in fields other than cultural or social matters.”
This is a clear reference to the top of the hierarchy, and yet another indication that under Rouhani’s supervision more and more atrocities are becoming a reality.And we should not forget that these remarks are made by none other than Rouhani’s own deputy police chief.
