The cases of Jazayeri-Arab raised questions about the Iranian government's desire to deal seriously with corruption. Jazayeri-Arab was convicted in 2002 in a major corruption case involving 50 defendants, many of them sons of prominent clerics.

In 21 February 2007, Iran's Special Judicial Complex for economic affairs declared that Shahram Jazayeri-Arab has escaped, while being transferred to a court-assigned financial expert committee. He must have become help from the government , because it is something impossible to escape from that prison. Hossein Shariatmadari of Kayhan newspaper wrote an article supporting the theory that those clerics were trying to cover-up the case. Following the escape controversy, the head of Judiciary, Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, fired a number of those responsible in the case, including the head of Evin prison and a few judges, and ordered an opening of a case in the military court for the judges.
