Officials like Saeed Toussi, can be heard in a distributed audio making shocking statements like, “His majesty (Khamenei) told Larijani to terminate the dossier.” Adding, “One can easily get rid of the guy.” He also threatened, “If they try me, I’ll take 100 people down with me.”
The dossier has been terminated under the claim of “lack of evidence.” However, the victims and their families have presented written documents, CDs, tapes, and numerous complaints, including many about repeated criminal acts against school children, since as far back as 2011. There are also two repentance letters in Toussi’s handwriting, and several SMSs with his name and signature to the regime’s judiciary.
The negative reaction of the people, regarding this dossier, has the regime’s authorities desperately appearing, one by one, to whitewash the dossier, and allegedly to force the plaintiffs and victims to keep silent and back down from their claim, by threatening to arrest and prosecute them.
The regime’s attorney general, Mohammad Jaafari, said in a TV interview, on October 28, “By broadcasting the news of a moral dossier, their goal is “to destroy the state’s prestige and dignity, and to call our values into question. They are after calling into question whatever is a value to the people, either Koran, laws, leadership or the leader. And their means is to find some issue somewhere and then highlight it.” (Channel 2 state TV).
Earlier, Jaafari quoted mullah Larijani, head of the regime’s judiciary, as saying “that the regime’s head of judiciary has found this dossier without incriminating evidence and has ruled to terminate this dossier.” (Entekhab, state run daily – October 23)
Mullah Larijani described this dossier as “raising false issues and false attributions to the leader and the head of judiciary and the country’s justice system” and called it as the attempt by “rancorous media” and “heavy attacks against the state and justice system.” He threatened the plaintiffs and said, “Those who help these media from inside the country should be prosecuted on the charge of abetting.”(Tabnak, state run media – October 24)
Deputy and spokesman for the regime’s judiciary, Mullah Ejei, informed of the full termination of “committing acts incompatible with chastity, and unlawful acts with the juveniles.” He said, “the plaintiff’s claim has never been proved.” He also said that the dossier of “encouraging corruption has not finalized yet… but an expert and experienced judge with 30 years of work experience as advisor…. has read the dossier and has said that there is no proven issue in this dossier.” Ejei then threatened the press, saying, “the media…. We should not publish issues that no verdict has issued against them and the crime is not certain yet, because they it is a crime and prosecutable. The court for Saeed Toussi must be held classified and the anti-revolution is after taking advantage of these type of dossiers.” (IRNA state news agency – October 24)
In an intimidation tactic against the plaintiffs and those who object, Mohammad Reza Heshmati, deputy of Ministry of Culture and Guidance, called raising such issue an “example of spread of prostitution.” (TABNAK state media – October 27)
The NCRI says, “These criminals are the same torturers in the regime’s hideous prisons such as Kahrizak where sexual abuse is a common torture, whereas the mullahs’ regime, in order to create fear and intimidation, has executed, flogged in public, or sentenced to long-term prisons many men, women and youths on the much smaller and incomparable charges.”
Amnesty International, on August 5, 2016, wrote about the execution of 19 year old Hassan Afshar on July 18, in Arak prison on moral charges. “Hassan Afshar was a 17-year-old high school student when he was arrested. He had no access to a lawyer and the judiciary rushed through the investigation and prosecution, convicting and sentencing him to death within two months of his arrest.”
“Over the past three decades, the mullahs’ regime has been the main source for spreading moral corruption in Iran; as the biggest thefts and grafts from the people assets in Iran’s history have occurred by this regime. Khamenei and other regime’s leaders are the worst killers, corrupts and thieves, and the cycle of repression, corruption and thievery could come to an end only by the overthrow of this regime and putting its leaders before justice,” writes the National Council of Resistance of Iran.
