According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, quoting Mehr News Agency, a citizen was arrested by IRGC intelligence agents in Mazandaran province for what they described as “links to a monarchist group based abroad”.

The report says: “This operation revealed that this trained person and his associates were trying to recruit members in cyberspace and real-world to increase people’s dissatisfaction and to reduce the maximum turnout in the presidential election, and, like in 2009, inflame the political atmosphere.”
