Mohsen Noorbakhsh called to court about Mohsen Noorbakhsh

REFORMISTS MUST FIGHT THE CONSERVATIVES OR LEAVE POLITICAL SCENE: "According to "Keyhan" newspaper, a mouthpiece of Ayatollah Khameneh’i edited by Mr. Hoseyn Shari’atmadar, a high-ranking official of the Intelligence Ministry specialising in confessing intellectual dissidents, Mr. Bizhan Namdar-Zanganeh, Mr. Es,haq Janhangiri and Mr. Mohsen Noorbakhsh, respectively ministers of Oil, Mines and Industries and General Director of the Central Bank are also to appear in court, in relation with an oil deal corruption case involving Mr. Behzad Nabavi, an influential reformist MM and one of the IRMO’s top leader.

All three have denied the paper’s allegation, but considering Mr. Shari’atmadari’s position and his close connections with both the leader and the Judiciary, one might bet that they are in the cyclone’s eye."
