Iranian official deplores summoning of students to courts

Kashan, June 1, IRNA -- Deputy Minister of Science, Research and Technology for Students Affairs Gholamreza Zarifian on Tuesday expressed concern about continued summoning of students to courts.

Speaking at a ceremony to honor academic figures of Kashan University, he voiced grievances about "worrying process the Judiciary has been involved since the beginning of new Iranian year by summoning students to courts".

According to approval of Supreme National Security Council (SNSC), any charge against students should first be examined by the 'Campus Disciplinary Committee'.

He said that under the current circumstances, the students refrain from getting involved in political activities.

Political activities had had no place in universities and other academic centers for two decades until Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei attended Tehran University four years ago and advised the students to take stance on political matters and criticize weak points to remove shortcomings.

The Supreme Leader said that university students are the enlightening corps of the community and their political activities would serve public interests leading to a lively society.
