Sistani disappointed by inaction on corruption

Sistani's Representative in Karbala, Ahmed Safi, relayed in Friday's sermon the Grand Ayatollah's frustration with lack of results in prosecuting the "heads of corruption." Safi had this to say: "The year passed without clear achievements on the ground...this is very regrettable...I will not say more at this point."

The tone is different from what it used to be 6 months ago when the reforms initiative was launched. Today it is more indicative of frustration than of resolve. This a worrisome sign.
