Ahmad Montazeri, son of the Grand Ayatollah Hossein Montazeri, was arrested yesterday, in order to start serving his six-year prison sentence. Ahmad Montazeri was condemned for having published the audio tape of a special meeting of the so called “Death Committee”, a special tribunal created by Khomeini in 1988, in order to eliminate the political adversaries. In the tape, Ayatollah Montazeri attacked the Committee and the execution of more than 5000 political prisoners. In the “Death Committee” there was also Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi, actual Minister of Justice in the Rouhani’s Government. Before the crisis of 1988 and the critics to the regime, Grand Ayatollah Montazeri was considered the designated successor of Ayatollah Khomeini.
