Ayat. Jannati to Judiciary: Decide rioters' case as soon as possible
IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Jan 29, IRNA -- Substitute Friday prayers leader of Tehran Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati on Friday called on the Judiciary to make swift decisions on the post-vote rioters, especially “the Ashura vilifiers.”
“Showing weakness under present circumstances will be tantamount to times worse future,” said Ayatollah Jannati in his Friday prayers congregation address in Tehran University campus, asking the Judiciary Chief, Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani, to speedily implement the judicial rulings issued in the case of the post-election rioters.
He said the Judiciary shoulders heavy duty of dealing with the case of the post-election rioters.
Further addressing himself to the Judiciary Chief, Ayatollah Larijani, Ayatollah Jannati in his second sermon reiterated harsh punishment of “Moharebs” (Those waging war against God).
Lauding Judiciary for execution of two of the post-vote rioters on Thursday, Ayatollah Jannati said on July 9, 1999, too several people were executed so that we would no longer witness such event as that of Ashura.
Elsewhere in his sermon, Ayatollah Jannati referred to the US military build-up in the quake-torn country of Haiti, saying the US indifference towards killing of tens of thousand people in the country is an instance of its ill nature.
“Instead of sending medicine and humanitarian assistance to Haiti, the US raises and stabilizes its military presence there,” said the Ayatollah.
The reason for Iran’s opposition to the US is Americans’ "war-mongering and hegemonic" nature and characteristic, concluded Ayatollah Jannati.
