Saeed Hajjarian summoned to court, released on bail

Tehran, Dec 2, IRNA -- Leading journalist Saeed Hajjarian was released on bail after he was summoned to the court on Wednesday over his remarks on the 1998 serial killings of the intellectuals and dissidents, the daily Hambastegi said here Saturday.

It said that Hajjarian was summoned after the Judiciary Head, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi had banned any comment on the serial killings. The murders were later on blamed on rogue elements within the Intelligence Ministry.

Hajjarian, a close ally of President Mohammad Khatami, remains partially paralyzed since a bullet wound pierced his cheek in March. Eight men were detained after the assassination bid.

Last week, an MP said that three suspects in his attempted assassination are in custody and two others are free on bail.
