Tehran: The daughter of former Iranian
President Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani has been brought to trial
on charges of making propaganda against the ruling system.
Her lawyer, Gholam Ali Riahi, tells the semiofficial ISNA
news agency that the charges against Faezeh Hashemi are
related to interviews she gave to news websites.
Hashemi appeared at opposition protests after the
disputed June 2009 presidential elections and was briefly
detained in February.
Riahi said today he has asked the court to give him three
days to prepare a final defense.
