A top aide to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the former president of the Iranian regime, has been taken to jail to serve his prison term for corruption, the official IRNA news agency reported Sunday.

Mohammad Reza Rahimi, was convicted by supreme court in Iran last month and sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay a 10 billion rial ($300,000) fine.

The court also ordered Rahimi to pay compensation equivalent to some $800,000.

During his trial was revealed that he has bribed 170 parliamentarians for a total of 1200 billion tomans which was equivalent to $4.5 billion at the time.

The disclosure of bribery by 170 members of mullahs’ parliament is a scandal that regime’s Supreme Leader Khamenei is trying to cover up, according to a report by the National Council of Resistance of Iran.

Ahmad Tavakoli, a senior parliamentarian called for Ahmadinejad himself to face justice.

Concurrently, Haddad Adel, a very close associate of Khamenei, attempted to cloak this scandal. He stated that Khamenei is against targeting other people in this issue.
