News and rumors from Iran- June 26-27-28
Large amounts of money from leading Iranian banks are reported to being transferred out of the country.
Rafsanjani is reported to have enough votes from the Council of Experts in Qom to displace Khameini, delayed announcement because of dispute over what to replace him with: another 'Supreme Leader', or a group to rule in his place. "Waiting for the other shoe to drop."
Mousavi claims he is completely restricted, many of his support staff arrested, and others, including 70 professors, arrested or disappeared. (which explains his absence from public eye.) All but 4 of the professors allegedly released.
General NOT arrested, and still 'obeying Khameini.' makes outrageous claims.

According to WhyWeProtest, several Iranian government websites are attempting to use pictures and videos from the net to identify protesters. What awaits those identified? Undoubtedly arrest, torture and death. One site has been shut down, another shut down but moved to Germany, and another.goes up and down.

Rumors keep spreading about Rafsanjani and the Council of Experts who could unseat Khamenei and his candidate. Does it bode well? Or is it another betraying compromise? Mousavi's wife promised more protests. But who will lead them? All leaders have been arrested. Or have they?
