Leader Offers Condolences on Demise of Top Cleric Leader Offers Condolences on Demise of Top Cleric

Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei extended condolences on the demise of Ayatollah Mohammad Momen.
In a message on Friday, Ayatollah Khamenei described Ayatollah Momen as a prominent religious scholar and praised his “loyalty and commitment to social and revolutionary” values, the Leader’s website reported. 
Ayatollah Momen, who was a jurist member of the Guardians Council, passed away at the age of 81 in a Tehran hospital on Thursday after battling brain hemorrhage and respiratory problems for several months.
The late cleric, who was an influential member of the high-level vetting body, was first appointed to the position by late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini, in 1984 and continued to serve in that capacity after Ayatollah Khamenei extended his assignment in 2014.
Ayatollah Momen also served as a member of the Assembly of Experts in all its five terms.
