Tehran, Iran, Sep. 24 – Iranian authorities have closed down the offices of a Persian-language news website, state media reported on Sunday.

Seals were placed on Wednesday on the entrance to the offices of Baztab, which was founded by the former Commandant of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), Mohsen Rezai, according to the news agency Mehr.

Mehr said that the decision to ban Baztab came after complaints against the website by the Office of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The website’s former director, Fouad Sadeghi, was previously an official of Iran’s secret police, the Ministry of Intelligence and Security.
