Dariush Esmaili, Majlis Supreme Committee of Mines Investigator pointing to the divestiture of mines 2 and 3 of Golgohar, Sirjan, said that the government has not had enough privileges to give them over.
The possession of the mines was given over to the Social Security Organization as compensation for debts.
Esmaili said that as the mines concerned are according to a new mine law considered as major mines, where the government is not the only party to decide.
He asserted that all decisions on the affairs of major mines must be made with the consent of the Majlis Supreme Council of Mines.
"The other point is that in giving over the mines, the previous year’s budget law is being referred to, which is three twelfth of the current years’, whereas with the new year’s budget passed and introduced, the two mentioned laws are not consultable and the government must make reference to the current year’s law,” he further pointed out.
He added "In the current year’s budget law, the divestiture of mines was included in the act proposed by the government, but the Majlis excluded it, so mines are not included in the governmental budget.”
He also stated that the act raises some concern because it is done just a few days before the end of the current administration.
