According to Borna News pro-government vigilantes and Basijis have attacked and vandalised the home of Iranian opposition leader, Mehdi Karoubi, who has been very vocal in his opposition to the rigged June 09 presidential elections and the subsequent violent government crackdown on the anti-government protesters.

This is clearly an attempt to silence Karoubi’s criticisms of the current government of Iran. So far, Karoubi and his family have been stoic in their resistance to intimidation.
