0830 GMT: Claims of the Week. Peyke Iran has two stories which raises eyebrows. The first asserts that the relatives of high-ranking officials are fleeing Iran and seeking asylum abroad.
(Comment: Is panic setting in? How much stolen cash have they sent abroad and to what degree is it spurring a crash in Iran's currency. Rials will be worthless if the regime falls so fleeing hardlioners will try to change them for something else while it is still possible).
The website also alleges that children are now being detained when their activist parents are arrested by Iranian authorities.
COMMENT: That has been standard practice under the Supreme Mugabe (aka the Great Intimidator). Often relatives are housed in the next room and tortured so their screams can induce a political prisoner to confess. Even the children of Grand Ayatollahs have been given this treatment. The Khomeini family believes, for good reason, that death squads supported and protected by Khamenei murdered Khomeini's eldest son, a severe regime critic.
Unfortunately I can't read arabic script and farsi so I'd appreciate a translation of the original which appears here:
IRAN”S BANKING SYSTEM NEAR COLLAPSE?
1135 GMT: Economic Rumour or Reality? After chatter this week that Iran’s major banks are on the verge of insolvency, Peyke Iran reports that the Bank-e Mellat branch in Tehran’s Bazaar was closed by security forces. And Rah-e-Sabz writes that the Government has asked Parliament for 15 billion Toman ($15.2 million) to ease the cash problems of the banks.
Also, of interest: KHAMENEI ACCUSED OF OVERSEEING A DETERIORATION OF DEMOCRACY
1225 GMT: Mohammad Hassan Haeri Shirazi, the son of Ayatollah Haeri Shirazi, has continued his challenge to the Supreme Leader. Having criticised Khamenei for overseeing a deterioration of democracy and the moves to an oppressive regime, Haeri Shirazi has declared that the Supreme Leader must be accountable for the actions of his headquarters and associated institutions (IRIB, Revolutionary Guards and Basiji, Islamic Propaganda Organization, deputies in universities, Kayhan newspaper, and the Guardian Council).
UPDATE: THE PLOT AGAINST AHMADINEJAD
KHAMENEI JAILERS MAY SOON MARTYR TWO IMPRISONED TOP MOUSAVI AIDES
1150 GMT: Health Concerns. In addition to the heart attack of Mousavi advisor Ali Reza Beheshti, Rooz Online notes the transfer to hospital of Hassan Ahmadian, head of the Mousavi campaign’s public committee, because of a worsening kidney condition.
HOW CAN KHAMENEI EVER WIN BACK PEOPLE’S RESPECT WHEN THEY CAN SEE AWFUL CRIMES HE APPROVED ON VIDEOS LIKE THIS?
NEDA AGHA-SOLTANI WOULD HAVE BEEN 27 TODAY IF KHAMENEI’S “CRACKDOWN” THUGS HADN’T SHOT HER TO DEATH
