A group of Jewish Iranians who say their missing relatives were kidnapped and tortured by the Iranian government have sued the country's former president, delivering the summons to him directly while he was visiting the US, it was reported on Sunday morning.
The seven families, who reside in Los Angeles and Israel, say their relatives were arrested at different times between 1994 and 1997 as they tried to leave Iran by crossing into Pakistan.
The lawsuit, claims former Iranian president Mohammad Khatami instituted policies that prevented the relatives from having trials and did not give family members information about where they were being held.
