Information about the arest of former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad turned out to be a fake. According to a source from a close entourage of the politician (the lawyer of Ahmadinejad) this news is a fake. The fake information about the arrest could be thrown in order to destabilize the internal situation in Iran.

Al-Quds Al-Arabi, an independent pan-Arab daily newspaper, published in London since 1989 and owned by Palestinian expatriates, was the first news agency, who announced the arrest of the former president. Leading anti-Iranian news agencies immediately took up and shared this news.

According to Al-Quds Al-Arabi Mahmoud Ahmadinejad was arrested and accused of organizing the protests.

"This fake is for those who do not understand the intricacies of Iran's domestic policy and the relationship between the key political figures. Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has good personal relations with Supreme Leader of Iran Ali Khamenei, and Hassan Rouhani’s government knows it. Any attempts to restrict Ahmadinejad's freedom would lead to serious problems for those , who ever wanted to arrest him. The fakenews could be initiated by Iranian reformers or British special services, "- commented Leonid Savin, editor-in-chief of the think-tank
