Iran court summonses Ahmadinejad over Larijani complaint

TEHRAN (AFP) — Outgoing Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was on Monday summonsed to appear before the criminal court following a complaint lodged by parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani, the government website announced.

The summons orders Ahmadinejad to appear before the court on November 26, website Dolat.ir said.

It said the case arises from “a complaint lodged by Mr Ali Larijani” as well as by a parliamentary commission.

“The charge is not specified in the notice,” the statement said, without elaborating.

Relations between government and parliament soured during the final phase of Ahmadinejad’s eight-year presidency, with bad blood between the two branches spilling into the open in February over the impeachment of a minister.

During the session, squabbling broke out in which Ahmadinejad and Larijani got into verbal fight.

Ahmadinejad will be replaced by Hassan Rowhani as president on August 3 following presidential elections last Friday.
