Regime mouthpiece accuses Khatami of, gasp!, wearing suit in passport photo

The regime is continuing to spread innuendos against opposition leader and former reformist President Mohammad Khatami.

Yesterday, March 9, Fars News Agency, linked to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC), claimed that a foreign travel ban had been placed on Khatami. The report was rebutted half an hour later by Khatami's lawyer.

Today it was Javan Online's turn to attempt to discredit the former two-term president by reporting that he had committed the crime of wearing a suit in his new passport's photograph. Javan Online, the web site of Javan newspaper which also happens to be controlled by the IRGC, made the affirmation this morning. The item will probably appear in tomorrow's edition of the daily.
