A number of people, who were involved in protests that took place after the 2009 presidential election, have been summoned and questioned because they have started their "illegal activities" ahead of next month's elections, the judiciary's spokesperson said.

"Some seditionists have resumed their illegal activities, so they were summoned and questioned, and were warned that if they continue their activities, they will face stronger action," Gholamhossein Mohseni Ejei said during a regular press briefing in Tehran on Sunday, Fars News Agency reported.

Ejei explained that the people summoned were released on bail. He hoped that all candidates and supporters of political groups would abide by the law to help officials conduct the Feb. 26 parliamentary and Assembly of Experts elections in a "secure, calm and competitive" atmosphere.
