MP Ali Motahari: “Iranian Police is responsible for the attack to Saudi Arabia’s Embassy”

Iran conservative MP Ali Motahari, spoke about the attack against the embassy of Saudi Arabia in Tehran, happened after the execution of the Shia cleric Nimr al-Nimr. In his speech, Motahari attacked Saudi Arabia, calling the rulers as ignorants, racist and tribal. But, after the attack to Ryadh, Motahari started to speak about who was responsible for the Saudi diplomatic representations in Iran.

For Motahari, the Iranian police is the responsible of what happened. The Iranian MP,  has compared that attack to the one that he suffered during his visit in Shiraz, in March 2015 (Good Morning Iran). The choice of Motahari to compare the two attacks – the one against him in Shiraz and the one against Saudi Embassy – is a clear attack to IRGC and Hezbollah forces.

After speaking about the crisis with Riyadh, Motahari dedicated the second part of his speech to the internal situation of the country. Another time, the Iranian MP condemned the lack of freedom for the press (Good Morning Iran). He ended his speech with reference to the “events of 88” (the protest of the Green Movement between 2009 and 2011). Motahari denounced that the head of the Iranian Magistrature – Ayatollah Sadegh Larijani – has  issued arrest warrants without the order of a Tribunal, in violation of the Constitution.
