So I guess Moussavi has a dearth of people who live in Iran and are qualified to be his aides and has chosen as his aide a student living in the UK? I can only imagine Obama’s campaign aide living in Sweden or something like that, and traveling to the U.S just before or during elections. Yes, that makes a lot of sense.
Mousavi aide banned from leaving Iran
The head of defeated presidential candidate Mir-Hossein Mousavi’s information committee, Abolfazl Fateh, has not been allowed to leave the country for Britain.
Following the recent incidents and a move by some Mousavi supporters to provoke people to hold “illegal gatherings”, Fateh – who is a PhD student in Britain – has been banned from leaving Iran, Fars news agency reported.
Fateh has been banned from leaving the country so that some issues behind the gatherings can be clarified, the news agency reported.
Following the announcement of the results of Iran’s 10th presidential elections, supporters of some candidates took to the streets to protest against alleged irregularities in the election process.
Meanwhile, Iran’s Interior Ministry has repeatedly declared that it has not issued any permit for the rallies and has stressed that such protests are illegal.
Iranian authorities have urged the defeated presidential candidates and their supporters to lodge their complaints through legal channels, rather than staging street protests.
