TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — A brother of former Iranian President Hashemi Rafsanjani says the former leader’s website has been blocked after an order from the government.

Mohammad Hashemi, Rafsanjani’s younger brother, told the semiofficial ISNA news agency Friday that a company providing services to the site told Rafsanjani’s office that it was ordered to cut services to the site.

Rafsanjani, president from 1989 to 1997, supported opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi in the disputed 2009 presidential vote that led to re-election of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

Since the election, Iran has blocked dozens of opposition websites including the website of former reformist president Mohammad Khatami.

Rafsanjani is head of Expediency Council, a body that advises Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on state matters.
