Qom: Son of Iran’s founding revolutionaries was sentenced to several years in jail Sunday after releasing a decades-old tape in which his father denounced the mass execution of prisoners, local media reported. Ahmad Montazeri, 60, was convicted by a clerical court in city of Qom, on charges of “acting against the national security” and “releasing a classified audio file”, said the reports. He received a further year for “propaganda against the system” according to the sources. The court said he would only serve six years in view of his lack of previous convictions, his age, and “reverence” for a brother he lost in an insurgent attack. Montazeri is the son of Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, who for decades was the right-hand man to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, the father of Iran’s Islamic revolution. The elder Montazeri was one of the few Iranian leaders to voice opposition in 1988 when Khomeini ordered the execution of thousands of political dissidents held in the country’s jails.
