Iran: distrust

The Iranian judicial spokesman Ali Reza Jamshidi confirmed that two international aids-experts Arash and Kamyar Alaei within days will stand trial for acting against national security.
They have also been charged with membership in opposition groups.
The two doctors are imprisoned in Evinprison in Tehran since June.
This was the first official confirmation by Iran of the case.

Iran announced that oiloutput will be cut by 545,000 barrels per day as of January 1st.
OPEC agreed in a December summit to cut output by 2.2 million bpd to prevent the downward spiral of oil prices.

Impeachment motions are filed against the Iranian Minister of Agriculture Mohammad-Reza Eskandari, Minister of Health Kamran Baqeri-Lankarani and Education Minister Alireza Ali-Ahmadi.
According Iranian law an impeachment motion needs a minimum of ten parlementarians signatures in order to be placed on the agenda.

Advar news reports that the newspaper Nimrooz that was planned to be distributed last Saturday, lost its publishing license.
The Ministry of Guidance contacted the publishers and told them not to publish.

December 29, officials, identifying themselves as tax inspectors arrived at the private law office from Shirin Ebadi and removed documents and computers, despite her protests that the materials contained protected lawyer-client information.
This was the second rate against Ebadi within ten days.
Human Rights Watch and the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran expressed serious concern that the continuing attacks against Ebadi not only endanger her, but puts all Iranian civil society activists in peril.
They call upon the Iranian authorities to restore intact the confiscated documents and computers and to cease any further harassment of Ebadi and other human rights defenders.

In Iran there are childoffenders, still on death row.

Children are being hanged to death.
A child will be hanged to death.
