Iran`s Ahmadinejad given court summons over feuds
Tehran: Iran`s official news agency says a criminal court has summoned outgoing President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad over a lawsuit filed by the country`s parliament speaker and others.
Today`s report by IRNA gave no further details, but Ahmadinejad and the speaker, Ali Larijani, have waged political feuds for years. In February, Ahmadinejad released a barely audible videotape that purported to show discussion over bribes that included Larijani`s brother. A parliamentary committee also joined Larijani in the legal action.
IRNA, which comes under the president`s authority, noted there were several other subpoenas issued previously against Ahmadinejad. It described the latest as unconstitutional. The court set a November date for Ahmadinejad`s appearance.
He officially leaves office in August after the swearing-in of President-elect Hasan Rowhani, a relative moderate who won a landslide victory last week.
