Mehdi Karrubi spoke out a day after reformist and opposition leader Mir Hossein Moussavi criticized the government, saying remnants of the “tyranny” and “dictatorship” that prevailed under the toppled Shah of Iran’s regime persist today.

Karrubi, whose statement appeared on Moussavi’s Web site, denounced “tyranny, arrests and imprisonment of journalists, students and political activists, show trials, executions, and heavy-handed sentencing of those who are unjustly and wrongly accused as well as a greatly increased military environment.” CNN
