Summary of Today's BroadcastRFE/RL Persian ServiceMonday, June 10, 2002 - Writers Association protests judiciary's book recall - Book censorship may relocate to Qom - Government to pay back $1.25 billion debt - New York gang controls the foreign ministry - Tehran housing market: high prices and no action - Study on prostitution Writers Association Protests Judiciary's Recall of Permitted Books * In a statement issued in Tehran today the Iranian Writers Association (IWA) called the judiciary's orders to recall already permitted books illegal. IWA's board member Javad Mojabi says the association has joined the book publishers and booksellers association in opposing the multiplication of censorship centers. He tells RFE/RL that the ministry of culture and Islamic guidance is liable to the judiciary on books that are published with its permission and the judiciary's prosecution of writers and publishers of these books is against the law, especially since the recall of books has been done without due process and jury trials. (Mehdi Khalaji) Book Censorship May Relocate to Qom Seminaries * The conservative clerics who act in the name of Qom's religious seminaries have reportedly sought control of censorship of all non-scientific books. (Mehdi Khalaji) Government to pay off $ 1.25 billion to social security and Qods-e Razavi * Minister of economy and finance announced that the government plans to repay a 9000 billion rials ($1.125 billion) debt to the social security organization; another 1000 billion rials ($125 million) will be used to repay the powerful Qods-Razavi foundation in Mashhad. Tehran University economics professor Sadeq Zibakalam says Qods-Razavi foundation is active in a variety of large-scale businesses, from construction contracting to import-export, and the government debt could be for a number of transactions. He tells RFE/RL that the government should pay back its debt to the social security organization in cash and not by transferring ownership of money-losing factories and businesses. (Siavash Ardalan) Professor Says "New York Gang" Runs Foreign Ministry * In an interview distributed by the student news agency ISNA, professor Askar Khani, director of the US and Europe program at Tehran University's center for strategic studies, said a group of influential officials, whom he called "the New York Gang" have monopolized key positions in the foreign ministry, including control of foreign missions, causing discontent at the ministry. He said the group formed after the appointment of Kamal Kharazi to Iran's mission to the UN and is funded by proceeds from a high rise on New York's Fifth Avenue owned by the Alavi Foundation, a post-revolutionary successor to the Pahlavi Foundation. His comments came as behind-the-scenes negotiations to prevent a planned Majles impeachment of foreign minister Kamal Kharazi continue. (Alireza Taheri) Tehran Housing Market Shuts Down as Prices Shoot Up * The Tehran municipality's ban on selling air rights has caused a sudden jump in real estate prices. City Council member Ebrahim Asgharzadeh said the municipal government has joined hands with big landowners to drive up housing prices. Sadeq Farnam, a real estate agent in Tehran's Ekbatan area, tells RFE/RL that sellers, concerned about more price hikes, are afraid to sell, while buyers hold back hoping for a price break as a result of a potential partial repeal of the ban. Hamid Eslami, a journalist at Tehran's Entekhab newspaper, says during the early 1990's selling air rights helped the city become financially independent at the expense of apartment buyers, but the proliferation of high rises has choked many northern neighborhoods and could not be allowed to go on. He tells RFE/RL that private investors, who see no financial security in the industrial sector, have concentrated on housing and are pushing up prices. Higher prices benefit only the large companies holding big parcels and drive out the general public and smaller real estate developers. To impose their policies, the big landowners form alliances with city officials and try to find allies in the City Council too. (Mehdi Khalaji) Impact on Iran of Euro's Rise * Iran earns most of its income in dollars and has for the past three years benefited from higher oil prices and a strong dollar. The recent rise of the euro against the dollar hurts Iran's purchasing power in euro markets where it does most of its shopping. (Fereydoun Khavand, Paris) Prostitution Begins at an Early Age, Study Finds * Some 300,000 prostitutes are working in Iran, according to Hadi Motamedi, an official of the health ministry. Tehran University professor Shahin Oliyai, who has just finished a study on 147 prostitutes, tells RFE/RL that most began at an early age and a majority come from broken families. (Golnaz Esfandiari) WORLD * Afghanistan postponed the meeting of the supreme council, or loya jirga, for a day. Nader Naderi, a spokesman of the independent loya jirga committee tells RFE/RL that the delay was due to the fact that many members are still on their way to Kabul. Kabul correspondent Ahmad Takel says US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad attributes the delay to rumors in the Kabul press yesterday about the former king's Mohammed Zaher nomination to head the next government of Afghanistan. According to Khalilzad, Zaher wants Hamed Karzai, the head of the interim administration, for the job. (Golnaz Esfandiari) * US security agencies warn of possible terrorist attacks.

كانون نويسندگان ايران در تهران در بيانيه اي توقيف كتاب هاي صاحب جواز انتشار را غيرقانوني توصيف كرد. دكتر جواد مجابي، نويسنده و منتقد ادبي، و عضو هيات دبيران كانون نويسندگان، در مصاحبه با راديوآزادي مي گويد: هم كانون نويسندگان ايران و هم اتحاديه ناشران به اقداماتي كه اخيرا براي گسترده تر كردن دايره سانسور انجام شده، اعتراض كردند. وي مي افزايد: به اعتقاد كانون نويسندگان، مسئوليت پاسخگوئي به قوه قضائيه در باره كتاب هاي صاحب اجازه انتشار از سوي وزارت فرهنگ و ارشاد اسلامي متوجه وزارت ارشاد است و پيگرد نويسندگان و ناشران اين كتاب ها موجه نيست، هرچند كه كانون نويسندگان با هرگونه سانسور كتاب و نوشته مخالف است و بر آزادي بيان و قلم و انديشه تاكيد مي ورزد. مجابي مي افزايد جمع آوري كتاب از سوي قوه قضائيه بدون تشكيل دادگاه و راي هيات منصفه، اقدامي غيرقانوني است كه مورد اعتراض كانون نويسندگان ايران قرار گرفته است. وي مي گويد اميدواريم روزي با انحلال اداره سانسور، نظردادن در باره كتاب ها به خود مردم منتقل شود.
