Reformist site announces government involvment in attacks on Karroubi's home

Mehdi Karroubi

A recent report on reformist websites reveals that a number of government figures were identified amongst the attackers of Mehdi Karroubi’s home.

In the holy month of Ramadan, the home of Mehdi Karroubi, Iranian opposition leader, was attacked by plain clothes forces for five nights in a row. The attacks were condemned by opposition leaders and human rights activists.

The government however claims no responsibility in the attacks and attributed them to arbitrary forces.

Tagheer website reports that Mohammad Larijani, Governor of Shemiranat, was directly involved in the attacks.

Commander Ahmadi Moghaddam, chief of Islamic Republic security forces claimed 100 people involved in the attacks were identified and added: “But it is not so that the police arrests and confronts people in any gatherings.”

Tagheer claims that numerous eyewitnesses have identified “government forces and figures” involved in the attacks.

They maintain that Mohammad Larijani was consistently in telephone contact with Morteza Tamaddon, Governor of Tehran, reporting the attacks.

They even add that the Governor was stationed not far from the scene of the attack and had the situation under surveillance.

The Islamic Republic government has stepped up pressure on the opposition leaders, Mehdi Karroubi and MirHosein Mousavi in the past weeks.
