Tehran Mayor Detained

By: Mir M.Hosseini

Gholamhossein Karbaschi, the mayor of Tehran was detained on charges of corruption. He was found guilty on July 23, was banned from public office for 10 years, got two years in prison, and fined $533,000. The court ordered 60 lashes, a sentence that was later suspended. Being an ally of Hashemi Rafsanjani, and the sect in the regime called reformists, he called all charges against himself as political. Although branding opponents has been a widely used practice by conservatives, the fact that Tehran's municipality totally has become a corrupt institution is undeniable where relations are above regulations. After his term, he appeared again in the political scene as the editor of Hambastegi newspaper which was shut down briefly.
