BBC NEWS | World | Middle East | Who's Who in Iran: "Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi-Shahrudi

Ayatollah Shahrudi is head of the judiciary and close to both the president and the supreme leader.
He has promised to co-operate with President Khatami in reforming the judiciary. However, he was appointed to the post by Ayatollah Khamenei, whom he advises on religious matters.

Ayatollah Shahrudi, 52, has already removed a number of hardliners from the judiciary.

He is broad-minded and relatively untouched by the factionalism which affects the ruling clerics in Tehran."
