The report of the attack by the plain clothes thugs on the office of late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and the shutting down of his office by authorities:
In the name of God
On Sunday, 13 June 2010, the thugs attacked the offices of late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and Grand Ayatollah Saanei.
This attack that started at 4:00PM local time with the excuse of Mehdi Karroubi’s travel to the city of Qom continued until late night with breaking the windows of the offices of the Grand Ayatollahs and chanting slogans, and eventually ended in invasion of the office and vandalizing the property at 4:00AM on Monday, 14 June 2010. The attackers did not spare any kind of insult.
It should be mentioned that these attacks happened following the repeated summoning and threats against myself, Ahmad Montazeri, by the intelligence office and the Special Court for clergy in Qom with the aim to shutdown the office of late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and stop paying salaries [through his fund] to the clerics.
The interesting point here is the presence and silence of the police and special security forces and the complete coordination between them and the plain clothes militia! In this attack all the items of the office were damaged and the photos of late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri were torn up and insulted.
They broke office’s windows, chairs and even the television set, torn down the curtains and by hanging from the ceiling fan and treading down the vacuum cleaner damaged them.
Following these attacks on the morning of Monday, 14 June 2010, about 12 individuals from intelligence forces with a court order from the Special Court for the Clergy in Qom came to the office of the late Grand Ayatollah Montazeri and searched the office, confiscated the damaged items and shutdown and sealed the office; and by this action approved all the destructive actions of those who attacked. This is while one would expect from the security forces to control the plain clothes individuals and bring security to the area, but unfortunately not even one of the thugs was arrested!
