Iran has arrested several anti-corruption officials on fraud charges, the justice minister announced on Sunday.
"In the Government Discretionary Punishments Organisation (GDPO), some of our colleagues have been corrupted," Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi said, quoted by Fars news agency.
"In line with the fight against corruption, more than 10 colleagues in GDPO, most of them managers and consultants, were arrested and interrogated," he said, without giving further details.
On its website, the GDPO says it was set up to fight economic and financial corruption.
