Tehran, YJC. Judiciary Spokesman has said that Ahmadinejad was summoned to court without either he or the Head of the Judiciary knowing.

Mehr News Agency reports what Qolamhosein Mohseni Ejei said "I was not aware of the fact and got to know it from news websites, neither was the Head of the Judiciary, who was to know the issue only after he was questioned about it.”

"Naturally every official may be litigated for having violated their legal duties or by a private plaintiff,” he added.

Ejei further said "As for the President, there have been a number of suits against him by some legal as well as real entities, including the Article 90 Commission and the Board of Directors of the Majlis and also individuals.”

He provided comments on how the suit was filed and said "The suit was filed in the Ministry of Justice and the disagreements circled around the legal aspects of the 140th Article. The case was studied to find whether it is a common charge and must be pursued in the Ministry of Justice or it regards trespassing duties and would be pursued in the Supreme Court. Some items of the complaint were clarified and the case was resolved and ordered by the Supreme Court to the 76th Criminal branch, which has issued a summons for a few months from now.”
