Director of the Financial Disclosure Department Nazim Aref on Sunday said 61 out of 110 deputies have submitted financial disclosure statements. Yesterday was the last day for deputies to file and submit their financial statements according to the 2006 Financial Disclosure Law, he added. The department provided lawmakers with the statement form on January 13, and they had three months to file and submit them as stated in the law, Aref noted. The law provides an extension for up to a month before the department is obliged to enforce the regulation. Last week, department officials said all senators have announced their financial assets. According to the 2006 Financial Disclosure Law, any public official who fails to submit a financial disclosure statement by the imposed deadline faces between six months and three years imprisonment.

How much do you want to bet that the rest of those MPs who didn’t file their statements, are all taking that month extension to open offshore accounts in the Cayman Islands?
I wonder if these financial disclosure forms are open to the public and/or the media for review?
