TEHRAN Second hearing session of those allegedly involved in the Tehran University incidents was held in public Saturday in the Bench 1 of the Tehran Public Court.

The court is putting back on the track a far-gone Tehran University dormitory case following a suit brought by the Ex-Chief of the Tehran Police Farhad Nazari who was himself held in the dock and later cleared of under the charges of laxity during riots which engulfed Tehran in days of scuffles in last July.

The press reports said that the court heard charges brought by Brigadier Farhad Nazari against another former police chief Davoud Soleimani and the Head of the Tehran University Hostel Mohammad-Kazem Kouhi.

Nazari has indicted the two with libel, slander and inciting the public opinion. The court Judge Mohammad Ahmadzadeh informed Kouhi of the charges against them and asked them to defend himself.

Then Kouhi presented his defense while saying that the Law Enforcement Forces and plain-clothes attacked the university dormitory and beat the students and even the sons of the martyrs while adding that he was
responsible to reflect these facts.

He said he had presented to the court a list of the damages inflicted on the hostel and as well as names of students disappeared from the university hostel following the varsity incidents.

The damage inflicted on the hostel was estimated to be about 8,450 million rials, he added.

In part of his statements, Kouhi said some 250 university students have lodged complaints against the Law Enforcement Forces attacking the Tehran University dormitory.

The varsity incidents erupted after students held protests over the closure of a reformist newspaper, ****Salam****.

The incidents over, the court tried Nazari and dozens of his subordinates under the charges that he had let police and plain-clothes people to enter the university campus and beat up students. He was finally exonerated from all charges but was dismissed from his post.
