Mousavi Says Roots of Dictatorship Still Exist in Iran

February 2, 2010

On Tuesday, former Prime Minister and presidential candidate Mir Hossain Mousavi said, “Today, one can identify both elements and foundations which produce dictatorship as well as resistance against returning to this dictatorship.”

“Stifling the media, filling the prisons and brutally killing people who peacefully demand their rights in the streets indicate the roots of tyranny and dictatorship remain from the monarchist era… I don’t believe that the revolution achieved its goals.”
