NCRI - The Iranian regime banned state-run daily 'Ghanoon' (meaning 'law' in Persin) on Wednesday 'until further notice' for 'spreading lies.'

According to the daily's editor in chief, Massud Kazemi, the ban was issued over a report about the release on bail of former IRGC commander Mohammad Rouyanian who was chairman of the Persepolis soccer club. He had been arrested on fraud charges.

On April 28, the Iranian regime closed down the state-run Ebtekar newspaper for 'spreading rumours and lies' because it published a report on the sacking of the head of the Prisons Organization.

Ebtekar's managing director Mohammad Ali Vakili told Mehr news agency that the ban was imposed by the judiciary authorities after the paper published details of the attack on political prisoners at Tehran's notorious Evin prison.

Protests at the brutal raid on Ward 350 forced the regime to remove prisons chief Gholam Hossein Esmaeeli, which the mullahs then portrayed as his 'promotion' to hide the fact they had been forced to back down over the protests.

At least two other state-run dailies have been shut down in Iran in recent months.
