Iran prosecutor urges no leniency for detainees

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran’s top prosecutor has ordered his representative in Tehran not to show any leniency to detained opposition protesters, according to a statement posted Monday on a judicial Web site.

“Strong action must be taken against seditionist elements,” General prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi said in the statement, addressing Tehran chief prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dolatabadi.

The statement was referring to opposition protests last month in which at least eight protesters were killed and more than 500 arrested in the worst violence since the height of the unrest in the summer.

Monday’s statement follows a call made recently by hard-liners for the execution of opposition leaders.
