Summary of Iran Stories of Today&apos;s BroadcastsBehnam NateghiSunday, December 22, 2002 <b><font size=+1>Iran Calls Detention of Visa Violators in California "Unjustifiable"</font></b> * Foreign ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi protested the INS detention of Iranian visa violators in California. He said "the US government is using violence, threats and pressure both in its foreign policy and in acts inside the country towards Iranians." Seven reformist newspaper editors also voiced their protest and in a letter to US journalists complained about what they called "inappropriate measures by the US immigration office towards our compatriots." (Mahdieh Javid, Washington) * The US blocked the bank accounts of the embassy of Pakistan&apos;s Iran Interest Section and the Washington bureau of Iran&apos;s official news agency, IRNA. The action may be linked to the $301 million damages that a Federal district judge in Washington ordered Iran to pay an American who was held hostage in Lebanon by Iranian-supported Islamic militia. * The foreign ministry summoned the Swiss Ambassador Tim Golimann on Saturday to receive a protest against the detention of Iranian visa violators in California. Tehran University international relations professor Ahmad Naqibzadeh tells Radio Farda that it is a duty of the Iranian government to defend Iranians inside and outside Iran, including those living in the US.

Reformist Aftab-e Yazd quotes dissident cleric Mohsen Kadivar, who says "the American elite criticize the US government&apos;s treatment of Iranian visitors." Aftab-e Yazd quotes economy professor and political activist Fariburz Raisdana who says "Whenever Iran&apos;s negotiations with the EU becomes serious, elements within Iran do things to spoil them." Reformist daily Hayat-e Now quotes President Khatami&apos;s parliamentary deputy who says Khatami does not want anyone to be prosecuted on charges of insulting him. (Amir Armin, Washington) <b><font size=+1>Iranian Press on the Launch of Radio Farda</font></b> * "Iran" the daily newspaper of the government news agency IRNA writes that the US started Radio Farda for a propaganda assault on Iran. Entekhab prints portions of President Bush&apos;s message to Iranians on Radio Farda. Aftab Yazd carries the President&apos;s message and his picture, but says President Bush repeated his "interventionist threats and statements." (Iraj Aryanpour, Washington) <b><font size=+1>Iran Postpones UN Atomic Inspectors Visit</font></b> * As Russia&apos;s minister of atomic energy Alexander Rumyantsev begins his four-day trip to Iran to visit the Bushehr nuclear plant, Iran postponed the visit of a delegation from the International Atomic Energy Agency scheduled for February. The delegation under the IAEA chief Mohammad ElBaradei were to visit the nuclear facilities in the Tehran province towns of Natanz and Arak, in which Iran is accused of developing nuclear weapons. (Alireza Taheri, Prague) * Russia&apos;s atomic energy minister Alexander Rumyantsev said during his trip to Iran he plans to only focus on the Bushehr project. He said the nuclear research facility in Natanz and the heavy water production center in Arak were built by Iranian experts to produce parts of the atomic fuel needed by the Bushehr nuclear plant and he has no plans to visit those facilities at this time. (Mani Kasravi, Moscow)<b> <font size=+1>FM Misses Afghanistan Meeting of Neighbors</font></b> * Foreign minister Kamal Karrazi cancelled his trip to Afghanistan due to "flight problems."

(Shahran Tabari, Prague) <b><font size=+1>Death Row Professor Criticized VP&apos;s Support</font></b> * History professor and leftist-Islamic political activist Hashem Aghajari, a board member of the Mojehedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization (MIRO) who was sentenced to death for criticizing the clerical rule and the Shiite principle of religious emulation, attacked President Khatami&apos;s parliamentary deputy Mohammad-Ali Abtahi who had implicitly admitted that he deserves some punishment for expressing his belief in a protestant Islam. Abtahi had said in an interview with the official daily Iran that with his June speech in Hamedan Aghajari damaged Islam and the clergy, but punishing him by death would damage Islam and the clergy even more. (Amir-Mosaddegh Katouzian, Prague) <b><font size=+1>Judiciary to Start Crime Prevention Centers</font></b> * The judiciary chief&apos;s deputy in charge of social affairs said new crime prevention centers will soon become operational. Crime prevention was a 50 year old clause in the civil code that the judiciary used in order to close down reformist newspapers in 1999. Tehran-based laswyer Mohammad-Hossein Aghasi tells Radio Farda that adding crime prevention to the duties of the judiciary is one of the mistakes of the Islamic Republic constitution. He adds that the clerics who have assumed the role of judges in the judiciary had better leave crime prevention to experts in healthcare, welfare and social work. (Fereydoun Zarnegar, Prague) <font size=+1><b>Italian Magazine Reports on the Women&apos;s Ward of Kermanshah Prison</b></font> * The Italian weekly L&apos;Espresso published a photo essay on the life in the women&apos;s ward of a prison in Kermanshah, a city of one million west of Tehran. It reports that 80 percent of the 130 detainees were jailed on drug charges, in which they had been silent and forced accomplices. A 15-year old girl tells L&apos;Espresso reporter that she is in jail for beating her teacher, a cleric, who wanted to rape her. Doctors Kamiar and Arash Alai, who run the prison&apos;s clinic, say drug addiction and AIDS threaten the prisoners&apos; lives. (Ahmad Ra&apos;fat, Rome) <b><font size=+1>Judiciary Arrests Accused Pollster&apos;s In-Laws</font></b> * The judiciary arrested the mother-in-law and the sister-in-law of Alireza Namvar-Haqiqi, an official of the culture ministry who was named last week in the conservative press as a defendant in the trial of polling agency officials charged with spying for the US. Three officials of two agencies were arrested after the publication of a poll that showed more than 75 percent of respondents favored relations with the US. And, Namdar-Haqiqi was at the court in the first day of their trial. Namvar-Haqiqi&apos;s relatives told <b>Radio Farda</b> that they do know where his in-laws were taken. They add that agents entered Namvar-Haqiqi&apos;s house in Tehran and took away his papers and equipment. Namvar-Haqiqi said he would press charges against those who broke into his house and attached and insulted those who were there. In a letter to judiciary chief Shahroudi, he said he left the country legally and protested being called a fugitive criminal by the conservative press. (Mahmonir Rahimi, Prague) <b><font size=+1>Iran-Pakistan Economic Ties</font></b> * Economic relations will be high on the agenda of talks tomorrow in Pakistan between President Khatami and General Musharraf. The level of trade between the two populous neighbors decreased from $200 million in 1998 to $120 million in 2000, but it went up in the past two years. General Musharraf said yesterday that Pakistan expanded its oil imports from Iran to $500 million per year, and expects Iran to buy more goods, including rice and wheat, from Pakistan. Iran and Pakistan will also discuss the 2,600-kilomoeter gas pipeline project to India. Last February they signed an agreement to launch a study of the project. (Fereydoun Khavand, Paris) <b><font size=+1>Khatami&apos;s Optimistic Budget Bill: Misery Index </font></b> * In his budget bill for the upcoming fiscal year, President Khatami sees a 21 percent increase in spending and income, and a GNP growth rate of 6.1 percent. Shahin Fatemi, chair of the department of international business administration at the American University of Paris, tells <b>Radio Farda</b> that Khatami&apos;s 14 percent estimate for inflation appears too low. His budget calls for creation of 550,000 new jobs, whereas according to government figures, to keep the unemployment rate from going up, the country needs 800,000 new jobs per year. According to the budget projections, eighty percent of government income would come from oil income, but oil prices may fall if tensions ease in the region. The budget calls for attracting $10 billion in foreign investments, which is unrealistic, considering the current conditions. The fact is, he adds, that 50 percent of Iranians live below poverty level and Khatami&apos;s economic program has failed in the past five years. Fatemi says adding Khatami&apos;s own estimates of next year&apos;s unemployment and inflation, Iran would face a misery index rate of 30 percent, which means Iranians would be that much poorer.
