Iran suffers from deep-rooted problems in its banking, including a phenomenon called “unidentified account holders” in Iranian banks.
According to the Iranian semi-official Mehr News Agency, there are an estimated one million accounts with unknown holders only with Bank Melli Iran, one of the 41 Iranian banks.
“Bank Melli Iran is one of the most credible banks in the country. You can imagine how the condition is with other banks”, banking expert Mohammadreza Arab-Moghaddam told Mehr News Agency in Iran.
