/PanARMENIAN.Net/ Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi
and reformist former President Mohammad Khatami on Sunday blasted
the trials of people arrested in post-election demonstrations,
CNN reported.

Those on trial had been tortured into confessions, Mousavi said in a
statement posted on his Ghalam News Web site. "They have been stepped
on so severely that they would have confessed to anything else,
had they been instructed to do so," Mousavi said.

Nearly 100 Iranians arrested in the aftermath of the disputed June 12
presidential elections went on trial Saturday. In addition, another
10 people went on trial Sunday.

Meanwhile, Hojatoleslam Mohammad Taghi Rahbar, a member of parliament’s
Judicial Commission, on Sunday accused Mousavi and Khatami of being
the main leaders of the recent disturbances.

"A complaint … regarding the extremist and destructive behavior
of Mousavi has been handed to the judiciary and we hope that the
judiciary would take up this case quickly," he said.
