Rafsanjani Defends the “Rule of Law”

Ayatollah Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, the head of the Assembly of Experts and chairman of the Expediency Council said: “Educated and knowledgeable individuals either teachers or university professors have a very high statue and dignity among the people and they earned this high dignity by defending justice and truth.”

He made the remarks in a meeting with the members of the academia faction of the parliament for the National Teacher’s Day while congratulating this day to all teachers and praising the high statue of teachers and professor.

In another part of his remarks Ayatollah Hashemi-Rafsanjani added: “When it comes to making laws and passing bills the parliament is in charge and the interference and meddling of other organizations can seriously damage the statue and dignity of the parliament.”

The head of the Assembly of Experts emphasized: “Actions that are either above the law or are against the law by any individual, any group or organization seriously damages the unity, solidarity and trust of the people.”

At the beginning of this meeting the chairman of the academia fraction of the parliament, Mostafa Kavakabian, gave a brief report about the actions and performance of this faction and also on behalf of a group of members of the parliament asked for the return of Rafsanjani to the Friday prayer platform as Imam.

Since the Friday Prayer in July of last year following the presidential election in which many protestors participated and Ayatollah Hashemi Rafsanjani demanded the release of all political prisoners he has not led another Friday prayer.  Icana
