The killer Iranian regime announced today that opposition leaders Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi will stand trial for sedition. The Iranian judiciary also said that the two democracy leaders will be detained before their trial.
Fars News reported:
A senior Iranian judiciary official on Wednesday pointed to the Iranian nation’s massive and strong call for the trial of the leaders of recent unrests in the country, and said that the judiciary will definitely try sedition masterminds Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi.
“The judiciary will definitely fulfill its duty with regard to the trial of Mousavi and Karroubi,” Deputy Chief of the Judiciary for Legal and Judicial Development Hojjatoleslam Ali Razini told FNA.
Asked if the judiciary would issue orders for detaining sedition leaders, Razini pointed out that when it comes to the trial of suspects, judiciary has different tasks and detention is part of them.
“People should know that the judiciary will not ignore its duty with regard to the trial of sedition masterminds and will try them in due time,” the senior judiciary official underlined.
Also earlier today, Iran’s Prosecutor-General and Judiciary Spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeii said that Tehran would certainly punish those who masterminded the Monday unrests in the capital.
“Elements behind this incident should be punished since riot, insecurity, damage to public properties and invitation to chaos cannot be ignored.”
Several groups of seditionists staged riots in western Tehran on Monday afternoon. Rioters damaged public amenities and private buildings and properties and set up roadblocks by setting fire on garbage cans during the rush hour in the Iranian capital.
Surely, the Obama Administration will be able to put a stop to this injustice with another stern lecture… two years from now.
UPDATE: Opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi said he was ready to pay any price today for the sake of democracy.
