Child rape: Iran’s top Quran reciter to face court

Tehran : The spokesman for Iran’s judiciary , GholamHussein Mohsseni Aaiiji said that the case against Said Tossi , the prominent Quran reciter accused of raping 19 children of his students , was passed to an expert judge to decide and rule .

During a press conference, Aiiji emphasized that the court charged Tossi with “ advocating corruptions” , after 4 victims filed complaints against him .

While Iran's judiciary aide confirmed that the trial will not be made public, sources close to the reformists say that the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution is planning to assassinate Tossi , to preserve the leadership reputation and put an end to the scandal.

In a statement issued two days ago , Tossi denied all the charges against him , which resulted in a massive circulation of court documents such as the audio testimonies of the victims, and children talking about how he raped them when he was overseeing their participation in international Quaranic competitions .

Reformist sources say that Tossi threatened to leak the names of 100 of Iran’s high profile officials also implicated in raping and molesting children , if he was prosecuted.

Said Tossi who is 46 year old , is the representative of Iran at the International Quranic competitions and winner of the first prize both locally and internationally. He is extremely closed to the supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and currently accused of raping 19 of his students over the past years, when they were 12 and 14.
