Tehran, Jun. 03 – Students in the University of Ilam (western Iran) disrupted a speech by presidential candidate Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf, Wednesday afternoon.

Qalibaf, former head of Iran’s dreaded State Security Forces, is competing in Iran’s upcoming June 17 presidential elections.

During his speech in the university, students shouted, “Killer of the university dorms, where is your conscience, where is your conscience?”

The protesting students were referring to Qalibaf’s role as the chief security official in the 1999 SSF attack on a university dorm in Tehran, where a student was thrown out of the window to his death. The consequences of the attack were widespread, sparking riots which rocked cities across the country for many days.

Qalibaf repeatedly asked students to give him a chance to explain himself, but his pleas were met with chants of “The call of every freedom-loving person, boycott the elections”.

SSF officials removed a number of students before Qalibaf could continue his speech.

Their fate is unknown at present.
