The French news agency ‘AFP’ the arrest of a foreign exchange official in the Central Bank of Iran.

Ahmed Akraji, a deputy of the Central Bank of Iran for foreign exchange affairs, was sacked on Saturday morning following the fallout of the collapse of the Iranian riyal and its fall by 20%, which casts a shadow over the Iranian government.

The new head of the central bank, Nasser Hamati, who was appointed days ago instead of Waleedullah Saif, who was sacked after the collapse of the historic riyal, may in turn give up his foreign currency assistant, Ahmed Araghji, the Tasnim news agency reported.

The agency said the presence of Ahmed Araghaji, who lacks experience in such a sensitive position has been the subject of many criticisms of deputies and officials repeatedly.

The changes come in an attempt by the government to halt the riyal-dollar-losing series, losing 20 percent of its value since last month, leading to higher prices, inflation and a halt in buying and selling.

While popular protests have continued throughout Iran for five days, the Supreme Economic Council approved Saturday a meeting chaired by Iranian President Hassan Rowhani and attended by the heads of the three authorities.

According to the Iranian news agency, ‘the Council agreed on what they described as the outlines of the new policies of the Central Bank on foreign currency and ways to accelerate the confrontation of spoilers and the delinquent economic affairs’.,15700021,15700124,15700149,15700168,15700186,15700190,15700201,15700208&usg=ALkJrhhEAFo5RC6RGl06CLj1BoAPdziCiw
