A progressive clergy in Iran, charged for “causing disorder”

Hadi ghbal, a reformist clergy, is accused of causing disorder by the special clergy court. “I have heard this from reliable sources” says Rohollah Ghabel, Hadi Ghabels’ son.

It is said that Mr. Ghabels speeches and interviews have been used as reference by the clergy court, to prove his charges.
Mr. Ghabel is a reformist clergy and a member of the central committee of the partner ship front. He was arrested on 12 September in the religious city of Qom as the security forces searched his house and confiscated his writings and computer and transferred him to an unknown place.

His son has told us that the special clergy court has rejected their plea to get a lawyer or even visit him. This is whilst Mr. ghabel suffers from heart problems and needs close medical care.
