The Executive Director CISLAC said the visit focuses on three objectives, the first objective, which will focus on the campaign season, hopes to encourage candidates running for public office to publicly declare their assets.
Rafsanjani who said that CISLAC has been working close with the CCB decried lack of support to the agency by the government.
