The first chancellor of Tehran University after the 1979 Islamic Revolution remains in jail despite what his wife says is his deteriorating health, RFE/RL’s Radio Farda reports.
Mohammad Maleki, who is 76 and suffers from prostate cancer, was arrested in August during the crackdown that followed the controversial June 12 presidential election. Maleki had criticized the conduct of the vote and was charged in September with acting against Iran’s national security.
Maleki’s wife, Ghodsi Mirmoez, told RFE/RL that the authorities have still not brought any charges against her husband.
