TEHRAN (Reuters) – Iranian authorities closed the office on Tuesday of a leading reformer who came fourth in the disputed presidential election in June, seizing documents, discs and other material, an Iranian news agency reported.
Judiciary officials entered the office in northern Tehran of pro-reform cleric Mehdi Karoubi and told him and others inside to leave, news agency ILNA reported.
“Karoubi’s office has been sealed off upon the Tehran prosecutor’s order,” it quoted Esmail Gerami-Moghaddam, a spokesman for Karoubi’s party, as saying.
