A Look at Iranian Newspaper Front Pages on April 16

IFP has taken a look at the front pages of Iranian newspapers on Monday, April 16, and picked headlines from 23 of them. IFP has simply translated the headlines and does not vouch for their accuracy.

The US-led coalition’s Saturday attack on Syria and the ensuing reactions to the “criminal” move remained a top story today.

Several papers particularly highlighted the remarks made by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in a phone conversation with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin and the harsh comments made by Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani on the recent aggression on Syria.

Also a major top story today was the Iranian Judiciary’s failure to arrest former Tehran prosecutor Saeid Mortazavi, who has been sentenced to two years in prison for complicity in the death of a prisoner in the notorious Kahrizak Detention Centre back in 2009. Posters have been put on the walls of Tehran in the past couple of days, depicting Mortazavi as a “wanted cowboy”, implicitly criticizing the Judiciary and its spokesman Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ejei who said we haven’t found him.

The above issues, as well as many more, are highlighted in the following headlines and top stories:
