Guardian Council backs allegations of Iranian hardliner against opposition leaders

Abbas Ali Kadkhodai

Abbas Ali Kadkhodai, speaker for the Guardian Council defended the controversial statements of Ayatollah Jannati who has alleged that Iranian opposition leaders have received money from the US.

ISNA reports that when asked if the head of the Guardian Council has provided the judiciary with any proof, Kadkhodai said: “You must ask Mr. Jannnati himself.”

Ayatollah Janniti recently alleged that he is in possession of documents that prove opposition leaders have received a billion dollars from the US through Saudi intermediaries to topple the Islamic Republic regime.

Abbas Kadkhodai added that financial support of the US and the West for the opponents of the Iranian regime is a common affair.

He went on to say that Ayatollah Jannati “has made certain statements and he must be in possession of documents.” He added whenever the people who were involved in these allegations are brought to trial, “he will present his documents.”

Two of Iran’s opposition leaders, MirHosein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi have both condemned Ayatollah Jannati’s allegations and also called on the Shiite clergy to demand proof for these allegations.
