"Only 4 or 5 university students still in jail "

Wednesday, August 20, 2003 - ©2003 IranMania.com

Tehran, Aug 20, IRNA -- Member of the committee appointed by Majlis Speaker to follow up the case of detained university students said that only 4 or 5 students are still in jail.

Mohammad Hassan Abu Torabi said here Tuesday that upon the order of the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to the effect that the detained students should be released, the judiciary chief Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi has stressed the speeding up of the process.

He explained that these students are still in jail because their indictments are being considered in the Revolutionary Court while those released had no such files in court, he added.

The parliament member also remarked that in a letter to the Supreme Leader, while depicting the overall situation in universities, it was suggested that those who have done no damage to the life and properties of people and were not involved in the unrests should be treated in a different manner.

“This was immediately approved by the Supreme Leader," he noted, "because the ayatollah is of the opinion that the students who have committed offenses should be dealt with within the universities rather than referring them to the courts."

4 or 5, Right.

How about asking anxious parents who had sons attending university, if their sons are still missing or believed to be in prison? I think the number will be much higher.
