Top Iran Prosecutor Vows to Charge Opposition Leaders

Signaling that it might be ready to punish the leaders of Iran’s opposition movement more than a year after the last major antigovernment protests, a top Iranian judicial official has vowed to prosecute them.

“Leaders of the sedition will definitely be prosecuted,” Tehran’s chief prosecutor Abbas Jafari-Dolatabadi said in reference to the defeated presidential candidates Mir Hussein Moussavi and Mehdi Karroubi, who have long been accused by pro-government hard-liners of trying to undermine Iran’s leaders and of maintaining links with Iran’s foreign enemies.
