MUST SEE: Footage: Father of a dead protester takes IRGC officer to task
(video also below)
Why is the IRGC being used to defend a murderer? I've been threatened

I'm announcing that if I'm killed Mr. Alavir (IRGC officer) is responsible
My life is in danger. I'm a 40% invalid veteran. I served in the IRGC for 28 and a half years
But these people have defended a murderer. That's my complaint
IRGC officer:
Come to the ceremony and complain. Do whatever you can
If you were a man, you would have given your consent

Why should I? If they'd killed your child, would you have consented? What a foolish expectation!

Rumor that Foreign press may be allowed to cover Qods day
My guess is they'd park them somewhere tightly controlled
to make them promote Qods massage with out seeing any green

Mohamad Mehdi & Mohamad Ali Montazeri,Grand Children of Ayat. Montazeri arrested
Mohamad Sadeq Montazeri also arrested
Arrest warrant was issued by Special Court for Clergy.Arrest made in their home shortly before Iftar
They want to silence Montazeri by taking his Grandchildren hostage.

Reformist MP present at the meeting between Karoubi & Larijani
Majlis panel report was not discussed during the meeting which is a popular website where ppl from Iran post and discuss was brought up in today's trial
1 of the accused in today's trial was arrested after he posted instructions for blackout on Balatarin website

The mention of Balatarin website has worried a lot of Iranian bloggers who post regularly on the popular website

Family of Mehdi Nejati, killed during protests say authorities buried his body in the grave of someone whose name was close to his
Father of killed protester Ahmad Nejati says he sleeps next to his grave. He is afraid agents would steal his buried son's body

Abdoulah Momeni's wife said after 40 days of no news from him, I am happy to see him alive & sitting in court
Deputy Prosecutor in court today: Internet has become a threat, there are 24M Internet users in Iran
Deputy Prosecutor: Some sites are just created to spread false news about Iran
One of the defendants in court today was charged with being the creator of 9PM blackout idea (plug in irons)
Judge in court today told reporters, per Article 188 they are not allowed to use the defendants name in their reports
Prosecutor said today: Internet has been used to paint an unrealistic picture of Basij & NAJA
Abdoulah Momeni was charged with anti Islamic Repul activities, providing news to anti Gov media & distributng flyers

They also charged Momeni with holding interviews with anti Gov radios. Momeni was spokesman for Mousavi's camp

The internet, blogs, news sites & emailing were big topic to today's show trial

Green sites have been under cyber attack last 24+ hours. Norooz went out yesterday & is still out

Karoubi held a meeting with Larijani from 2.30 PM to 5 PM. Per mutual agreement contents wont be made public

via @iranbaan
Mohammad Ozlati Moghadam, head of the committee of devotees to Mousavi's campaign released

In Iran staying up all night wasn't helpful because night time burglary has turned into robbery
They answered people's doubts in a fair but not with reasoning, with bullets & beating
Wish Karoubi wasn't alive to hear a complaint of sexual abuse by a citizen of the Islamic Republic
I'm talking so the history remembers how in this nation they lost their shame & damaged the religion the country
What happened to one of my witnesses was a lesson not to release other witnesses to the ex-prosecutor of Tehran

It seems Karoubi, who's only crime was revealing Taraneh's case has unlocked a serial murder's case
... and his mouth sacrificed Etemaad Melli as well since the paper was shut down right away

I said in the meeting how could I film a rape to present you the video as evidence?
... Did you expect me to attach the weapon of rape as well?
...When I see the rushed reported of the investigation committee I become certain the members are ordered to end it

... in these reports there are quotes from me that aren't my words
... They've become so bold that they want to prosecute me instead of the criminals
The real trial is among people. We should see who the people will accuse

Complete Text of Karroubi Letter to The Iranian People: (article also below)

Majid Nayeri of Mojahedin-Enghelab was released last night after 89 days in prison

via @iran__news
A. Larijani met with Karroubi at Supreme Leader's request and conveyed him a message from Khamenei
To Larijani's request that Karroubi should keep quiet until things return to normal,
Karoubi said:
You expect me to keep quiet so a bunch of people who have spent their life opposing the Imam (Khomeini)
run things and commit whatever crimes they want. I prefer death to this silence (article also below)

محمد عزلتی مقدم ، رئیس كمیته ایثارگران ستاد انتخاباتی میرحسین موسوی شب جمعه آزاد شد

در انتخابات اخیر بیدار ماندن تا صبح هم کارساز نبود؛ چراکه قبح دزدی شبانه ریخته و این بار کار به رهزنی رسیده بود

رسش و ابهام مردم درباره سرنوشت رایی که داده بودند را پاسخ دادند اما نه با برهان و منطق که با گلوله و باتوم و چماق و ضرب و شتم
کاش کروبی زنده نبود و نمی دید که روزی در جمهوری اسلامی شهروندی نزد او بیاید و شکوه کند که در ساختمانی بی نام و نشان،
توسط افرادی بی نام و نشان تر،هرعمل قبیح وغیر معمولی براوصورت گرفته ازلخت وعریان کردن افرادونشاندن آنها در مقابل یکدیگر تا فحاشی های وقیحانه
و ادرار کردن در صورت آنها و رها کردن چشم و دست بسته دختران و پسران در بیابان
می گویم، تا در تاریخ بماند که چگونه عده ای در این مملکت چادر حیا را دریدند و غیرت دین و کشور را جریحه دار کردند

حوادثی که از سر یکی از شهود ما گذشت درسی شد تا بقیه شهود را دست و پا بسته در اختیار دادستان معزول تهران قرار ندهیم
گویی مهدی کروبی همه جرمش این بود که اسرار ماجرای ترانه را هویدا کرده و از سناریویی مشابه با سناریوی قتل های زنجیره ای پرده برداشته بود
و زبان سرخ او سر سبز روزنامه اعتماد ملی را نیز بر باد داد که به محض افشای این ماجرا روزنامه نیز تعطیل شد
در جلسه گفتم که مگر در حین ارتکاب تجاوز می توانسته ام فیلمبرداری کنم که اکنون فیلم آن را در اختیار شما قرار دهم
و مگر من در محل ارتکاب جرم حاضر بوده ام و نخ انداخته ام که اکنون به شما بگویم چقدر فاصله میان آنها بوده است
و آیا شما توقع دارید که من آلات جرم و تجاوز را هم ضمیمه پرونده می کردم؟
در جلسه سند دیگری دادم مربوط به خانمی که در خیابان بازداشت شده و همانجا در داخل ماشین ون به او و دختری دیگر تجاوز شده بود
به گزارش شتاب زده کمیته پیگیری که نگاه می اندازم یقین پیدا میکنم که اعضای این کمیته نیز دستور داشته اند که سروته ماجرا را جمع کنند
در این گزارش سخنانی از زبان من روایت شده است که من نگفته ام
آنچنانکه از این هیاهوها و شتابزدگی ها برمی آید مشخص است که قبای آقایان لای در مانده است
وقاحت اما به آنجا رسیده است که به جای مجرمان و مباشران و مسبان این مظالم، مهدی کروبی را می خواهند محاکمه کنند

محکمه واقعی در میان مردم است و باید به میان مردم رفت و دید که آنها چه کسی را محکوم می کنند و چه کسی را صدای حق خواهی خود می دانند

مجید نیری، عضو سازمان مجاهدین انقلاب اسلامی ایران، شامگاه دیشب بعد از 89 روز از زندان آزاد شد

فرزندان سید حسین موسوی تبریزی و فرزندان دو تن از افراد مرتبط با بیت آیت الله منتظری، آقایان ناظم زاده و احمدی نیز بازداشت شده اند

آخرين کلماتی که دکتر محمد مصدق درمجلس چهاردهم به زبان آورد: خاک بر سر اين مجلس! خاک بر سر اين مجلس

Translation of Karroubi's Letter to The Iranian People
Karoubi in an open letter to Iranians while describing some of the brief disasters
that took place in events after the election, protested to the way his previous letter
(in which revealed the allegations of rape in prisons)was processed in judiciary’s 3-member committee.
Also he emphasised that the true judges are the people and one should ask them
who they condemn and who they believe is defending their rights?!

Translation of Rafsanjani's Qods declaration (Persian article below)
Rafsanjani: "Be assured that night is always darkest before sunrise"

"God willing your courageous presence on Qods day will be a wake up call to the fools"
