The latest Iranian official to call for an end to the protests in Iran is Judiciary Chief Justice Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejei. 

During a speech today amongst judiciary officials, Mohseni Ejei referred to the protests as “riots” and said that those who support them “claiming to support the people of Iran” are also those who fund terrorists behind such attacks as the one on the shrine in Shiraz last Wednesday that killed at least 13 people. He asked rhetorically, “Who trains them, who arms them, who creates their fraudulent papers?”
