Iran's Prosecutor General says some 500 individuals arrested in the course of the post-vote unrest will be subject to court action.
Mohammad-Reza Tabesh, head of the minority Reformist faction in the Iranian parliament, Majlis, met with prosecutor general Qorban-Ali Dorri Najafabadi to address issues surrounding the post-election situation in the country.
Tabesh pointed to the acute distress of the families of the detainees and urged a 'legal approach' to the situation.
Following Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election in the June 12 vote, Iran became the scene of opposition rallies with some protests turning violent.
While authorities had previously announced that more than 1,000 people had been arrested over the course of the unrest, Tabesh said that according to Iran's prosecutor general the number of arrests stands at 2,500.>>>
