Hardline MP confirms travel ban for Karroubi and Mousavi

۴ اردیبهشت ۱۳۸۹

Font Size + | - Reset

Hamid Rasai, conservative Member of Parliament, announced that Iranian opposition leaders Mehdi Karroubi and Mir-Hossein Mousavi are not allowed to leave the country. Last week already, former president Khatami’s was banned from traveling to Japan to attend an international conference.
Yesterday, Iran’s Minister of Intelligence denied the existence of any official travel restrictions for Mohammad Khatami. Fars news agency reports that Hamid Rasai said: “Mr. Khatami was told he cannot leave the country and cannot make any preparations, and he has accepted that. He has been told that if he tries to leave the country, it will be officially announced that he is under a travel ban. And this also applies for Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi.”
The hardline MP maintained that the sole aim of the three opposition figures in leaving the country would be to use international platforms to “keep the seditious movement alive.” Rasai added: “Mousavi’s file is under investigation and he will certainly be prosecuted, which is why he is restricted from travelling abroad.”
In connection with the file of Mehdi Hashemi, son of Ayatollah Rafsanjani, Rasai said: “Ayatollah Hashemi is entangling himself in the fate of Mehdi Hashemi and the people around them are presenting the situation in such a way that confronting Mehdi Hashemi means a confrontation with Ayatollah Rafsanjani.” In the post-election events, the establishment has made charges against Mehdi Hashemi, who is currently in the UK. Ayatollah Rafsanjani has aligned himself with the opponents of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the post-election events.
Another conservative MP, Mehdi Kochakzadeh, announced yesterday: “Gradually all the leaders of the sedition will be arrested and the two or three remaining ones will also be arrested by the judiciary in good time.”
In the past ten months, Islamic Republic hardliners have repeatedly called for the arrest of Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, who have disputed the legitimacy of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s victory in the presidential elections of June.
