Special Clerical Court
Special Clerical Court, or Special Court for Clerics (Persian: دادگاه ویژه روحانیت) is an Iranian court for trying Muslim clerics. Some of the early controversial trials included the trials of Mohsen Kadivar and Abdollah Noori, both of whom questioned the legality of the court, suggesting it was illegal and unconstitutional. However Iranian Conservatives believe that Iran's Supreme Leader has the power to make new courts if he wishes - they say that according to Iran's Constitution, the Supreme Leader has absolute power, and the constitution represents the least of the powers he is allowed to exercise.
