Ministry of Intelligence

Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence announced on Saturday June 1 that it has identified a team of troublemakers on a “mission to sabotage” the 11th presidential elections.

The announcement states: “In addition to the identification and arrest of the members of this terrorist cell, their weapons stockpile has been discovered and confiscated.”

According to the ministry, the main suspect had assembled a group of 12 in order to create disturbances in the upcoming election.

In May, two people, Mohammad Heydari and Kourosh Ahmadi, were hanged by Iranian judiciary after being convicted of spying for Mossad and the CIA respectively.

The presidential election will take place on June 14, and the government is on high alert to avoid any form of protest resembling the mass protests that followed the 2009 presidential election.
