I was advised this week that Google, which runs Blogspot, of which this blog is a component, removed my 2019 article on ALIREZA MONFARED the Iranian fraudster, oil sanctions evader and money launderer, because the article contained an image of his adult son's Dominica CBI passport. It seems that Alireza made sure his son got a 10 year renewal on his CBI passport before the family fled from Dominica, ahead of INTERPOL agents.
Alireza is presently serving a twenty year sentence in Iran, for stealing $1.3bn from his government's oil sales proceeds. His partner, BABAK ZANJANI, was sentenced to death for the crime,; that sentenced will be reduced to life if the money is returned.
Apparently Google failed to actually look up the Monfareds before deleting the article; now compliance officers may not be able to identify a money launderer when he tries to move the proceeds of crime through their bank.
