    Ahmadinejad on the way out?

    Granny says dat's pretty bad if dey won't even let him in prison...

    Ahmadinejad Once Again Barred from Visiting Tehran's Evin Prison
    10/25/2012, Iranís judicial authorities have once again denied a request by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit Tehranís Evin prison.
    Iranís judicial authorities have once again denied a request by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to visit Tehranís Evin prison, where his top media advisor Ali Akbar Javanfekr is serving time. ď[O]n no account will a visit to Evin prison be allowed without coordination,Ē Sadeq Larijani, the head of the judiciary, said on Wednesday, according to Iranís student news agency. ďThe notion that the president has the right to supervise other powers (the judiciary) is completely false,Ē he said. The decision is viewed as yet another indication that Ahmadinejadís power is waning as his last year in office comes to an end.

    The judiciary turned down Ahmadinejadís first request to visit the Evin on Sunday, saying it was not in Iranís best interests for him to spend time on such a visit at a time when the country is facing an economic crisis. "As we are faced with special circumstances and the country's priorities are the economy and people's living conditions, all authorities should focus on solving key issues... visiting a prison is extraneous," chief prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie told ISNA news agency at the time.

    Ahmadinejad replied accusing the judiciary of unconstitutional conduct. Javanfekr, who was also the head of the countryís state news agency IRNA, was sent to Evin in September to serve a six-month sentence for publishing an article deemed offensive to Islam and public decency.

    Silly Yankees proudly proclaim their "division of powers" stuff when talking about US government.

    Looks like you boys don't hold a candle to Iranian division of powers.

    If a US president want to visit a prisoner, do you think a court will stop him?

    He's more of a figure-head, right? The Mullahs rule supreme.

    Mahmud, you got some `splainin' to do...

    Iran's parliament to grill Ahmadinejad on currency
    Nov 4,`12 -- Iran's parliament is planning to summon President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to be questioned over the country's plummeting currency, state radio reported Sunday. It will be the second grilling of the increasingly embattled leader in less than a year.
    The report said that 77 lawmakers signed a petition on Saturday claiming that Ahmadinejad's administration has been reluctant to regulate the currency market. By law the president has one month to answer the summons.

    The Iranian rial has plummeted in value against hard currencies over the past year, with the slide accelerating over the past month. Iranian politicians blame the drop on Western-led sanctions targeting the country's suspect nuclear program but also on alleged mismanagement by the government of Ahmadinejad, who has fallen out with conservatives who once backed him. On Saturday the rial traded at 31,000 rials to the dollar. It was about 11,000 in mid-2011. In early October it jumped to more than 36,000 rials from around 27,000 over a week.

    Signatories said the summons of the president came after Central Bank Governor Mahmoud Bahmani refused to appear in the parliament to answer their questions on the market. They said the government allowed the importing of more than 15,700 cars using a system for traders to obtain hard currency at low rates that is supposed to be only for foods and medicine. They also said the government did not buy domestic wheat and imported about $2.5 billion of wheat from abroad.

    This is one of many rifts between Ahmadinejad and his conservative rivals ahead of the June presidential election. In March the parliament grilled Ahmadinejad over alleged mismanagement of the nation's economy as well as his perceived defiance of Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei over the president's dismissal of an intelligence minister in May 2011. The minister was reinstated later at Khamenei's instructions.

    Report: Iran sets up base near disputed islands
    Nov 4,`12
    Iran's state TV is reporting that the country's powerful Revolutionary Guards have established a new naval base to reinforce its authority over three Persian Gulf islands also claimed by neighboring United Arab Emirates.

    The Sunday report says the base near Bandar-e Lengeh some 1,100 kilometers (700 miles) south of Tehran is the Guards' fifth in the Gulf.

    The Iranian-controlled islands of Abu Musa, Greater Tunb and Lesser Tunb dominate the approach to the strategic Strait of Hormuz, a key waterway through which about one-fifth of the world's oil supply passes.
