Karroubi Still Not Backing Down

Translation via Mousavi’s facebook page:

Mehdi Karoubi welcomed the recent remarks made by Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei, the General Prosecutor, in which he promised to “take Mousavi and Karoubi to court when the time is right”.

Karoubi said: “I very much welcome this event so that if during… these years due to some considerations I have not raised some issues, I could do so in details then”.

According to the office of Mehdi Karoubi, while Karoubi was attending a ceremony for the anniversary of the martyrdom of Imam Sadegh (Sia’s sixth Imam) and the day that the Seminary School of Qom was attacked by Shah’s forces, in response to the question regarding this matter said: “Unfortunately in these years the authorities that according to the quote by Imam Khomeini should be the servants of the nation, not only have not paid any attention to this advice but also instead of being responsible and taking fair positions, have confirmed the positions of extremists’ media; so that by doing so, they could hide their unjust behaviour and also insult and falsely accuse others who don’t have any media [to defend themselves].

Karoubi added: “This time not only I am not concerned about the “trial” but also I very much welcome it so that by this mean I can emphasise on my concerns that are raised from national and religious beliefs of the Iranians and Imam Khomeini’s ideas, and clearly reveal those who are oppose to these concerns.”
