110 MPs express support for attacked lawmaker

Iran Parliamentarians: Syrian elections showing country’s power

A member of Parliament said Sunday that 110 MPs have signed a letter to the judiciary chief expressing support for their colleague in the Parliament Ali Motahhari who was attacked last Monday by unknown people.

Iraj Abdi told IRNA that in their letter, the lawmakers have called on the judiciary chief to strongly respond to such self-motivated moves.

Motahhari, a moderate member of parliament, was due to deliver a speech at Shiraz University in central Iran when his car was attacked by unknown motorcyclists.

He is member of parliament from Tehran and a vocal critic of the former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for bringing the enemies of the country together to inflict a major blow to the nation by orchestrating sanctions.
