The state-run ‘Aseman’ daily has been closed down for describing the retribution court ruling as inhumane. The officials behind this daily have been placed under judicial prosecution.
This state-run daily on Tuesday in its fourth publication posted a piece in which an expert in an interview with this state-run daily described the retribution verdict issued by mullahs’ courts as inhumane. The charge the Aseman daily is facing is ‘publishing texts in contrast to Islamic standards’ and ‘insulting sacred issues’.
