Former President Mohammad Khatami supporters arrested

Monday, 29 April 2013

Abdolhamid Moafian, head of the Coordinating Council of Reformists in Fars Province and a supporter of former President Mohammad Khatami, was arrested last week. It is still not clear where Moafian is being held. Jamileh Karimi, a former advisor to the Governor of Fars Province during the Khatami presidency, was also recently arrested.  In recent weeks, a number of political figures across Iran have been calling on Khatami to run in the upcoming presidential election on June 14, 2013.
