"The Ministry of Intelligence of the Islamic Republic of Iran (Persian:
وِزارَتِ اِطّلاعات جُمهوریِ اِسلامیِ ایران Vezarat-e Ettela'at Jomhuri-ye Eslami-ye
Iran) is the primary intelligence agency of the Islamic Republic of Iran. It is
also known as VAJA and previously as VEVAK (Vezarat-e Ettela'at va Amniyat-e
Keshvar) or alternatively MOIS. It was initially known as SAVAMA, when it took
over the previous government's intelligence apparatus, SAVAK (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAVAK).
The ministry is one of the three "sovereign" ministerial bodies of Iran due to
nature of its work at home and abroad. It was established on August 18, 1984."
