article imageAhmadinejad summoned to court

Tehran - Current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been summoned to court, following a complaint submitted by Majles spokesman Ali Larijani.
Press TV reports that Branch 76 of the Criminal Court in Tehran has called upon Ahmadinejad to appear before the court in November, after he is scheduled to hand over the presidency to the President-Elect Hassan Rouhani, in early August.
The summon reads, "Appear in court following the complaint lodged against you by the head of parliament's Article 90 committee as well as Ali Larijani, the head of the parliament and Mr Yaghoub Khalilnejad,"
The unnamed charges, submitted by Majles spokesman Ali Larijani and joined by Mohammad Ali Pour-Mokhtar and Yaghoub Khalilnejad, come after Larijani's dispute with Ahmadinejad, whom intended to impeach Cooperatives, Labor, and Social Welfare Minister Abdolreza Sheikholeslami.
During Ahmadinejad's speech in defense of Sheikholeslami, he brought up certain accusations against Larijani's brother, whom is the president of the Science and Research Branch in an Iranian university.
Following the dispute, Larijani strongly criticized the president for raising the matter of his brother to the impeachment dispute. Taking advantage of his position in the parliament, Larijani in the past has attempted to lead campaigns to "undermine and block" Ahmadinejad, reports the Huffington Post.
Ahmadinejad has yet to comment on the charges to be pressed against him.
