Alireza Monfared, the Iranian oil sanctions evader, and partner of Reza Zarrab & Babak Zanjani, both under arrest, actually requested his Dominica diplomatic passport after he had been detained, for deportation, in Thailand. Emails recently made available confirmed that Monfared's diplomatic passport acquisition was conducted under opaque circumstances, and after he saw that his Dominica CBI passport was no help, when it came to evading law enforcement agencies abroad.
The emails, which have now appeared on the Internet, appear to show that Monfared's agents sent in an application for a Dominica diplomatic passport after his arrest in Thailand. Obviously, there was zero due diligence performed at that point. We also not that Monfared was offered the Domincan ambassadorship to Malaysia at that time, notwithstanding his deportation.
The head of the Dominica CBI program later, very assertively, asked when the money was going to be wired in. This is quite interesting, because the country's unauthorized, and illegal under international law, diplomatic passport sales program, is NOT part of Dominica's CBI program. So why did the CBI program manager demand payment, in a blunt manner ? That's because the program is only a cash flow device for certain corrupt leaders in Dominica, who use it to fund their reelection campaign, allowing them to remain in power indefinitely.
Meanwhile, the world business community, and its banks, are deceived, and injured, by counterfeit diplomatic, who are, in truth and in fact, career criminals with a license to steal, facilitated by the Government of Dominica, now truly a racketeering enterprise, whose "clients' prey upon others.
