Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi
Saham News reports that on Sunday Mehdi Karroubi visited Mir
Hossein Mousavi at his home and managed to hold a meeting with him despite
fierce attempts by security forces to stop them.
Karroubi once more insisted on the prevalence of fraud in the last two presidential elections and maintained that the country is overshadowed with "an atmosphere of lies and slander."
Mir Hossein Mousavi referred to the government legislation regarding the restructuring of subsidies and maintained that "there is no adequate force that can manage this legislation" because a large section of "able and prominent experts" have been sidelined.
Mousavi maintained that the Ahmadinejad administration has dealt severe blows to the country's economy as well as other sectors.
The two opposition leaders also condemned government pressure on students, lawyers and journalists and the heavy sentences handed to them.
They both emphasized that despite all pressures the protest movement is continuously growing with "new forces and fresh motivations."
The two leaders spoke out against the adventuresome policies of the government in the international arena which they maintain has resulted in the passing of various resolutions to impose sanctions on Iran. They added that these policies have left Iranian in a dire economic situation and the persistence of government in this manner could result in the collapse of the system.
Mousavi and Karroubi also condemned the government policies against the teaching of humanities in the universities. They invited the authorities "to use the top experts in the fields of economy, sociology and other fields of the humanities in running the country and to allow the job to be done by the country's professionals."
