Cleric urges Judiciary to bring police murderers to justice

February 24, 2018

TEHRAN – Ayatollah Mohammad Ali Movahedi Kermani, the interim leader of Tehran Friday Prayers, has asked the Judiciary to punish the murderers of five security forces who were recently killed in riots in northern Tehran.

The demand by the ayatollah came days after three policemen and two Basijis were violently run over and killed by members of a Dervish cult in protests in the Pasdaran neighborhood, northern Tehran.

Addressing worshippers, the ayatollah said nobody is allowed to cross security redlines, praising the police’s prudence and restraint in dealing with the rioters, Mehr reported.
