Iran dissident rejects retrial

Professor Aghajari questioned the power of Iran’s clerics

A leading Iranian reformist, Hashem Aghajari, has refused to attend the first day of his retrial for blasphemy in the north-western city of Hamedan.

Mr Aghajari, a university professor, also said he will not allow his lawyer to present his defence unless a Supreme Court ruling to open proceedings to the public is adopted.

His lawyer told the BBC that in view of strong local feeling against his client, he has asked for the case to be transferred to Tehran.
