The case of Minoo Khaleqi was announced closed on the orders of the mullahs’ leader, Ali Khamenei, on May 31, 2016.
Khaleqi ranked third during Isfahan’s sham elections for parliament, but she was disqualified by the Guardians Council after being elected.
A member of the Iranian parliament (Majlis), Mohammad Javad Fat’hi said the decision was relayed to the speaker of parliament Ali Larijani as finalized and Ms. Khaleqi will not be considered as a member of parliament.
Ms. Khaleqi had protested against the offensive remarks of a Majlis deputy against presence of women in the parliament.
