Revealed: Iran's Supreme Leader is a Billionaire
Iran's supreme leader controls a business empire worth around $95 billion, exposes Reuters.
While Iran has been buckling under the sanctions that have been crippling its economy, the countrys supreme leader is apparently enjoying the billions he has in the bank.
The Reuters news agency exposed on Monday that supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei controls a business empire worth around $95 billion, a sum exceeding the value of his nations current annual petroleum exports.
The little-known organization, called Setad, is one of the keys to the Iranian leaders enduring power and now holds stakes in nearly every sector of Iranian industry, according to Reuters. These include the finance, oil, telecommunications, and even ostrich farming sectors, among others.
The company has essentially built its empire on the systematic seizure of thousands of properties belonging to ordinary Iranians, including members of religious minorities, Shiite Muslims, business people and Iranians living abroad, according to the report.
According to the news agencys investigation, Setad has amassed a giant portfolio of real estate by claiming in Iranian courts, sometimes falsely, that the properties are abandoned.
The organization now holds a court-ordered monopoly on taking property in the name of the supreme leader, and regularly sells the seized properties at auction or seeks to extract payments from the original owners.
Reuters reporters identified nearly 300 properties that Setad put up for auction in May alone, many worth millions of dollars.
The organizations full name in Persian is Setad Ejraiye Farmane Hazrate Emam, translated as Headquarters for Executing the Order of the Imam.

While Iran has been buckling under the sanctions that have been crippling its economy, the countrys supreme leader... Ayatollah Ali Khamenei controls a business empire worth around $95 billion, a sum exceeding the value of his nations current annual petroleum exports. The little-known organization, called Setad, is one of the keys to the Iranian leaders enduring power and now holds stakes in nearly every sector of Iranian industry...
kill Khamenei and call it good
He can enjoy his great wealth while rotting in his grave
So... is Soros a rival or friend? Or both?
The entire mullahcracy must be killed, preferably by the angry Iranian public, probably will need just a little help. To do that, we’ll need to rid ourselves of the Indonesian Kenyan.
All it means is that he can afford young mistresses. Lotta good that will do him in the grave.
So...with this vast amount of wealth at his disposal I expect that we can see him sending a significant amount of aid on its way to the Philippines????
I’m confused. sharia isn’t obsessed with making muslims equally poor... just the non-muslims
so why is this supposed to be a slam?
The Iranians will have to do it themselves without any foreign help. The one thing that will rally them behind their crooked leaders is the thought that outsiders are manipulating the situation. They remember and resent the Mossadegh coup.
Same as the Chicoms. Just a different way of doing it
Seize power. Seize the assets.
Act all righteous
What a scam!
No different than what took place in the former Soviet Union in Russia. Some of the higher echelons lived high on the hog while the rest of the population suffered, at the same time preaching equality for each and every one.
The same goes for the current Man Boy leader of this once great country who along with his wife is lining his pockets and still way too many people think that he is the next best thing to sliced bread. But invariably and in the end the end History will be the judge and I believe his rating will not be very favorable.
More often than not, a dictator’s rhetoric is merely window dressing to conceal an elitist kleptocracy.
History proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Big Government is a big thief, something the Founders knew and something modern electorates, filled to the brim with ignoramuses, ignore.
