Offices of Montazeri and Sanei attacked

15 Jun 2010

The office of the late Ayatollah Montazeri in Qom was sealed yesterday morning by the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence. Ahmad Montazeri, the reformist cleric’s son, posted an announcement on Ayatollah Montazeri’s official website to confirm this news. According to the statement, 15 ministry officials carrying a warrant from the Special Court for the Clergy searched the premises and sealed the office entrance after confiscating some items. On Sunday night the office was also attacked by a number of pro-government forces. Ayatollah Montazeri, who was one of the most outspoken critics of the Islamic Republic government, passed away last December and his funeral was carried under strict security measures,
The plain clothes forces attacking his office, which Jaras reformist websites describes as “Basij, Hezbollah and Ansar forces” swarmed the offices of Ayatollah Montazeri and Ayatollah Sanei on Sunday morning at 4 am in protest to the presence of opposition leader Mehdi Karroubi, who was visiting Qom. According to Ahmad Montazeri, they broke the windows and the office furniture while tearing the curtains and vandalizing the office. The crowd chanted slogans against Mehdi Karroubi, Mir-Hossein Mousavi, Mohammad Khatami and Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, and in support of Ayatollah Khamenei.
The attackers of Ayatollah Sanei’s residence insulted the Shiite leader and Hassan Khomeini, the grandson of Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. In a video taken from the crowd surrounding Ayatollah Sanei’s residence, the speaker of the plain clothes forces threatens Hassan Khomeini that from September, he would not be allowed to teach at the Qom Seminary School. He warned the Intelligence and security forces saying: “We will not allow it; we will do our job; the guys from Intelligence, security and military forces should know and not say something tomorrow. We expect that in September we don’t have to deal with the presence of this indecent son of Haj Ahmad Khomeini (son of Ayatollah Khomeini) in Qom.” He also threatened Ayatollah Rafsanjani, the Chairman of the Expediency Council and the Assembly of Experts saying: “Mr. Hashemi has to return to the right path, otherwise we will get rid of him easily.”
Mehdi Karroubi, who is on a visit in Qom, was also attacked on Sunday by the plain clothes pro-government forces.
