Regime's 'Justice' Chief greeted with hostile slogans

SMCCDI (Information Service):
Angry protesters greeted, yesterday, the Islamic regime's 'Justice' Chief with hostile slogans. Ayatollah Shahroodi had to stay in his official car which was blocked by dozens of demonstrators in Tehran's Shariati Avenue.

Slogans, such as, "Marg bar Shahroodi e Eraghi" (Down with Shahroodi, the Iraqi), "Marg bar Dictator" (Down with Dictator), "Marg bar Taleban, Tche kabol, Tche Tehran" (Down with Taleban, in Kabul and in Tehran), "Marg bar Reshve-Khar" (Down with Corrupt), "Mamlekat e Eslami, In Hame Resheve-Khari" (Islamic State, So Many Corruption) and "Azadi, Edalat" (Freedom, Justice) were shouted by demonstrators.

Security agents fearing for the cleric's life and intending to avoid a spread of demo, closed the perimeters and arrested several protesters. Shahroodi is a native of Iraq and a theology teacher of the regime's Supreme Leader.
