About Abdollah Nouri
Abdollah Noori (Persian: عبدالله نوری) is an Iranian reformist politician and cleric. Despite his "long history of service to the Islamic Republic," he became the most senior Islamic politician to be sentenced to prison since the Iranian revolution when he was sentenced to five years in prison for political and religious dissent in 1999. He has been called the “bete noire” of Islamic conservatives in Iran.Career Abdollah Nouri has been called a "trusted lieutenant" of Ayatollah Khomeini who was "the religious guide to the Revolutionary Guards early in the revolution." Khomeini, appointed him as his representative to many other important organisations as well. Khomeini's successor, supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also appointed him a member "of a powerful council which advises him on major policies". But Abdollah Nouri also supported dissident cleric, Grand Ayatollah Hossein-Ali Montazeri, who had been placed under house arrest in 1997 for questioning the authority of Ayatollah Khamenei. He served as Minister of Interior for four years in President Hashemi Rafsanjani's first term cabinet. He also served as the Minister of Interior in Mohammad Khatami's first term cabinet until his impeachment by the conservative-controlled 5th Majlis for his "defence of political and social freedoms". Following his impeachment, Khatami brought Abdullah Nuri back to his cabinet as a vice-president. He was "generally seen as the most outspoken reformist" in Khatami's cabinet. In February 1999, he stood down from this post to take part in the municipal elections in February and was elected as the chief of the City Council of Tehran. He resigned from the Council in order to participate in the sixth parliamentary election. He founded a newspaper and named it Khordad, named after the victory of President Khatami on the 2nd of Khordad, 1376 by the Iranian calendar, equivalent to May 23, 1997. His newspaper advocated "freedom of expression, human rights and a modern and democratic Islam."
