Thursday, 25 July 2013

Gholam-Hossein Mohseni-Ejei has said that “if Iranians who left the country after June  return to the country, they will face charges as soon as they arrive.” Iranian journalist Masih Alinezhad, who lives in theUK, published a letter to Mohseni-Ejei on her website, saying that she discussed her return to Iran with several officials by telephone and was told that she can return but will be investigated for “her crimes”. She said, “My heart wants to return to Iran, but I am afraid of people like you (Mohseni-Ejei).”  A video uploaded to  YouTube showed Mohseni-Ejei at a news conference stating that those who committed a crime will face charges if they return to Iran. “Let’s assume that those who were engaged in attacks on the nation and system in the 88 sedition (referring to the June 2009 post presidential election protest)- if anyone committed a crime - and then officially left country with a passport and even unofficially, we will not ban them from entering the country, but once they come here, they will be prosecuted and charged.”
