The poster “Defalcation; Ringer silent!” refers to underground corruption & financial mismanagement of the statesman and their relatives. We know that according to written or unwritten laws in every part of the world, any misuse of government & public property is “crime”. According to the statistics of international and credible financial institutions, the number and quality of embezzlement has grown year by year. Meanwhile, in the Americas, Asia, the Pacific, Europe and Africa, respectively; the highest levels of defalcation and financial corruption have been detected and recorded. The poster reminds us of the unofficial verdict of “silence”. The poster background typography is a Farsi word for embezzlement (Ekhtelass).
