Iranian Intelligence Minister, Heydar Moslehi,
announced that the ministry has identified 80 foundations and organizations that
were active in the post-election protests.
In a meeting with the nation's provincial premiers he announced that these organizations were involved in the post-election "sedition" and one of them even has a 1.7-billion-dollar budget.
The Intelligence Minister reportedly added that the objective of the "seditious movement" in the Islamic Republic is "altering the behaviour of government officials and the people" as well as dismantling the Islamic Republic regime from within.
Mr. Moslehi maintained that this movement was established earlier at the conference of Berlin and Denmark.
He listed "People's Mojahedin Organization, monarchists, religious and ethnic terrorists, Baha'is, homosexuals, feminist groups, nationalists and Marxists" as members of this movement.
Iran's opposition movement once again displayed its strength and popularity during the massive funeral for Grand Ayatollah Montazeri held in Qom on December 21 in Qom.
Heydar Moslehi announced that "we are now
completely on top of this sedition and have the traffic of the seditious
elements with the West under close surveillance."
In the past months, Iran has accused the US and Great Britain several times of interfering in Iran's internal affairs.
Iran claims that the West is trying to dismantle the Islamic Republic by extending support to its dissidents.
Western countries have adamantly denied any involvement in Iran's internal affairs.
Many post-election detainees have been tried for collaboration with foreign countries in an attempt to topple the Islamic Republic.
The trials have been condemned by Iranian social activists and human rights groups for their lack of legal provisions.
