    Green Brief #89

    By Codeman177 – http:/twitter.com/codeman177

    Since Niteowl has started posting on his own blog, I have asked if I could begin publishing the Green Brief so that everyone on wwp would once again have a summary of the day’s news from Iran. I, like Niteowl, have gotten all of my information from reliable tweets and am not reporting any information that I could not confirm.

    January 20th 2010

    Protests/General news

    1. Today the pro-regime newspaper Kayhan reported that they had identified those responsible for the death of professor Ali-Mohammadi. They stated that Iran’s judiciary should go after Mir Hossein Mousavi, Mohammad Khatami, and Mehdi Karroubi who are partners with the “black triangle” of the CIA, Mossad, and Britain’s MI6.

    2. While almost all of the “Mothers of mourning” have been released, Persian2English highlights the case of one supporter who is reported to be in solitary confinement in Evin Prison.

    3. Six prominent professors of Allameh Tabatabei University have been relieved of their duties.

    4. University professors have published a “last will”, to be retrieved after their demises: “I, Professor XXXXXX, killed by a bomb/bullet/fallen from a high floor/ suffocated with a string/fallen in a sulphuric acid bath hereby declare that 1) I was not a nuclear scientist, 2) I was never a supporter of Ahmadinejad.”

    5. In a prolonged Press TV advertisement for the regime, Presidential candidate Mohsen Rezaei has blamed the post-election conflict on opposition candidates (Mousavi, Karroubi) who refused to act within the law and on foreign powers trying to unsettle the regime.

    6. Ali Reza Beheshti, Mir Hossein Mousavi’s chief advisor, has suffered a heart attack in detention. It adds, however, that Beheshti has contacted his family and said that he is now better.
