An former Intelligence Ministry official has been arrested in Iran.
According to opposition site Kaleme, Ahmad Shojaei (alias Farshid), a former member of the Intelligence Ministry, was arrested on 28 July along with his son Sajjad. The two were then taken to an unknown location.
The report suggests that Shojaei and a number of his colleagues were dismissed from the Ministry a few years ago. It also states that he emulated dissident cleric Grand Ayatollah Montazeri who passed away in December 2009.
