    Rafsanjani children barred from leaving Iran: report

    Updated at: 2140 PST, Thursday, June 18, 2009

    TEHRAN: A daughter and son of former Iranian president Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani have been barred from leaving the country over their alleged role in inciting disturbances since last week's presidential election, a local news agency reported on Thursday.

    "According to an informed source, Faezeh and Mehdi Hashemi were barred from leaving the country," the news agency said without further identifying its source.

    "Their role was proven in inciting and organising some illegal gatherings, riots and destruction in recent days," it said, referring to protests triggered by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-election.

    State television showed footage on Wednesday of Rafsanjani's chador-clad daughter Faezeh talking animatedly among protesters in Tehran.

    Supporters of main Ahmadinejad challenger Mir Hossein Mousavi have poured onto the streets in daily protests since the June 12 poll, which the defeated candidate has branded a "shameful fraud" and called for a new election.

    Rafsanjani, who remains influential as the head of two top clerical and arbitration bodies, was a key supporter of Mousavi during the election campaign.

    In a candidates' debate on prime time television, Ahmadinejad hit out at his predecessor charging that his sons had received financial privileges.



    I think the gulf is widening between Rafsanjani and the Supreme Leader. Let's see who gets rid of who first.

    We know the Assembly of Experts headed by Rafsanjani has the power to remove the Supreme Leader but can Supreme Leader kick out the head of Assembly of Experts?
