'Expect Ahmadinejad for a Third Term'
During the last presidential elections, Jalayipour was an effective organiser of Moussavi's election campaign. That was enough to vilify him in the eyes of Ahmadinejad's administration despite his revolutionary background. Jalayipour was arrested after the elections in the airport as he tried to board the plane to London, where he planned to continue with his PHD at Oxford university and join his wife. He was released on bail after appearing on the show trials but was arrested again at his father's house yesterday.
'I told them why do you enter my house like this and search everything in this way? Are we thieves and murderers?' His father asked the five heavily built intelligence ministry agents who rummaged through all his belongings including his wife's clothing and underwear.
'They filmed everything in the house except the pictures of my martyred brothers. I asked them why do you not film them? So your puppet masters know what kind of a family you are doing this to. As the five heavily built men left the house, they told me 'Just remember, Ahmadinejad will be the president for a third term' '
Of course according to the Islamic Republic constitution, a president can only run for two consecutive terms only but then again it is not the first time that even the Islamic Republic constitution itself has been violated.
