The Islamic regime-run news agency, Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) has reported that due to ‘increasing anger and demand for punishment’ of the two leaders of the Green movement, they have fled.
The Green Way Movement (Jaras) however reports that the two were picked up by the revolutionary guards and the Ministry of Intelligence and Security to the village of Kelar-Abad, in the Caspian region of Iran ‘in order to protect them’.
Parleman News however interviewed Karubi’s son, Hossein who stated that his father remains in Tehran and continues to deal with the daily issues facing the people of Iran. He added: “These claims are hallucinations emanating from the minds of those who know that they will never get their way and have to resort to spreading rumors that would mold well to their wishes. People who flee are criminals, not someone like my father who has a strong background and today both my father and Mr. Mousavi are with the people of Iran who have seen so much cruelty.”
