Excerpt from "Dor TV " -
After the release of Ayatollah Montazeri's voice tape by his son Ahmad Montazeri , regarding the mass killing of the political prisoners in Iran in 1987 by Islamic regime , he was summoned to the special clergy court and was sentenced to 21 years imprisonment and life time ban on wearing the clergy garment.
Mr. Ahmad Montazeri said ; the judiciary told him that they have reduced 15 years imprisonment because of his martyred brother who was killed in a bomb blast in Islamic Republic Party meeting in early revolution days apparently by Mojahedin Khalgh . So total imprisonment he was given was 36 years but reduced 15 years because of his martyred brother .
