/PanARMENIAN.Net/ The trial to prosecute a group of 100 'rioters' who
opposed the election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has begun in a
revolutionary court in Tehran, Fars news agency reported..
Iranian news networks said earlier that about 20 people accused of
rioting would be put on trial from Saturday.
Iranian news agencies say the accused face charges of having
"participated in riots, acting against national security, disturbing
public order, vandalizing public and government property and having
ties with counter-revolutionary groups."
The Islamic republic is engulfed in its worst crisis in its 30-year
existence as a group led by former premier Mir Hossein Mousavi refuse
to acknowledge Ahmadinejad's victory and demand a rerun of the
election.
