The Tehran’s representative in the Parliament (Majlis), MP Ali Motahari, denounced the bad status of the freedom of expression in the Islamic Republic. Speaking in the University Allameh Tabatabai in Tehran, Motahari said that, during the Presidencies of Khatami and Ahmadinejad, the “freedom of expression” was “acceptable”. Today, under Rouhani, the situation changed in worse, and the regime controls very strictly the “free flow of information”. Ali Motahari is well known in Iran for his battle in favor of a right process for the two leaders of the Green Movement, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi. For his position, MP Ali¬†Mohatari was physically attacked in the Parliament (Good Morning Iran) and before a speech in the Shiraz University (EA World View)
