Text of report from "The Nation's House" column, entitled: "Sorush will be dragged to the court too" published by Iranian newspaper Iran web site on 15 February

The writer and university professor, Dr Abdolkarim Sorush, will be summoned to the court on charges of insulting the Lor ethnic minority.

A Majlis deputy from Khorramabad, Baharvand, who is also a member of the Majlis's minority wing, while announcing the above, added: Sorush, in the introductory section of his book "The rules of governance and religion"
[Vernacular: "A'in-e shahriari va dindari"], has insulted the Lor tribe, and I am preparing a lawsuit in this connection.

He said: Sorush, in this book discusses his trip to Lorestan [Province] and says: "For a period I was in the trap of a cannibalistic tribe". I believe this is a blatant insult to the Lor tribe.

Baharvand also said: Of course, one does not expect anything else from a person who repeatedly ridicules sanctities of all the Iranian people in his speeches.
