Involvement of Khatami's brother in videotape case strongly denied

Tehran, July 1, IRNA -- An informed source at the Presidential Office here on Saturday strongly denied the report by certain sections of the press that President Mohammad Khatami's brother Ali Khatami and some politicians were involved in the case of distribution of videotapes implicating some officials of the system.

Saturday edition of the English-language daily `Tehran Times' wrote, ``It is heard that brother of President Mohammad Khatami, Ali Khatami, has been involved in distribution of the videotapes in which the officials of the system were insulted. It is also heard that a number of governors have been involved with the distribution of films too.''

The source told IRNA that such false accusations are calculated measures adopted by a special tendency for some time to attribute some issues to others and level insult on relatives of the president and members of the government.

The source was not aware of the ultimate goals of those making up and distributing such news. These acts can be a premeditated plan and a new round of ballyhoos to exert pressures on the president.

The informed source said, ``To clarify the realities and deal with any insult and dissemination of false reports a complaint would be lodged with judicial authorities.''
