The widow of a renowned Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) commander has accused its current head of treason, RFE/RL's Radio Farda reports.

Fateme Amirani's accusation came in an open letter to commander Mohammad Ali Jafari published on September 20.

Amirani is the widow of Revolutionary Guard division commander Hamid Bakeri, who is regarded as a war hero for his role in the Iran-Iraq War of the 1980s.

In her letter, Amirani describes the contested presidential election of June 2009 as a coup d'etat, and accuses Jafari of treason for the IRGC's role in engineering the election's outcome and in the ensuing crackdown on opposition protesters.
