“Jaras” news website which is close to the Iranian opposition leaders known as the “Green Movement” released information regarding an IRGC high-ranking commander.
Two month ego, seven prominent members of Iranian reformist parties who spent time in jail after the last year’s post-election events sent an open letter to the Iranian Judiciary System, invoking an auditory file of a speech by one of the IRGC high-ranking commanders in a secret meeting in Mashhad, and announced that what happened during the last year’s controversial presidential elections was a coup-d’état by the IRGC and officially complained against him, calling for an independent arbitration by the Judiciary System.
Jaras reports so about him:
His name is Commander Moshfegh. However, from the early days after this letter was publicized, the Green Movement associate websites considered the possibility that Moshfegh might be his alias.
Consequently, all these seven members were sent back to jail by the Judiciary System. After more than two months since their official complaint against the deputy commander of the IRGC “Sar Allah” quarters for his statements regarding the reformists and his confession to the IRGC role in the elections, Jaras website attempts to provide its readers with some unsaid facts about this commander:
His real name is IRGC Commander Abdollah Zeighami. His current position is the deputy commander of the IRGC “Sar Allah” quarters. During the Iraq-Iran war, he served in the IRGC’s Demolition and Operation Unit.
His speech in Mashhad reflects the mental image of the coup-d’état planners towards the critics of the current political situation and the protesters to the 10Th presidential elections as well as the risks of Ahmadinejad’s defeat and the necessity to contribute to his victory and explains the various aspects of a two-year informational and operational activity while verbally attacking the protesters. In his speech, Zeighami accuses the reformists and critics of irreligiousness, espionage, moral corruption, power-thirstiness and overthrow.
Jaras calls these statements “confessions” and continues:
The confessions by this commander which led to the letter and complaint by the reformists are thinkable. The organized role of the IRGC in the political activities, information operations to contribute to Ahmadinejad’s victory in the elections, causing obstacles for other candidates and the pre-election operations are of high importance. According to Zeighami, he personally interrogates the accused and the interrogation information on those who were detained by the IRGC is within his reach.
Quoting from its resources in Tehran, this opposition website continues to say:
As the result of the speech leak and the consequent complaint by the reformist, his promotion has been postponed.
The seven political activists (Mohsen Aminzadeh, Mostafa Tajzadeh, Abdollah Ramazanzadeh, Fezollah Arabsorkhi, Mogsen Safaee Farahani, Mohsen Mirdamadi and Behzad Nabavi) presented their complaint under the title of “complaint against the military-intelligence group as well as the planners and executors of election fraud” to the head of the Judiciary System as well as the Armed Force Judiciary Organization. The complainants, however, ended up in jail whereas the commander’s statements have not been refuted by any of the country’s officials.
