Iran's judiciary appointed former intelligence minister Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie as the new prosecutor general of the country, an announcement posted on Iran's judiciary website said on Monday.

In a "decree issued by the (new) judiciary chief, the new prosecutor general of the country was appointed...," the announcement said.

The new judiciary chief Ayatollah Sadeq Larijani made the decision after meeting with other supreme court judges, according to the report.

Mohseni Ejeie was sacked from his post as the intelligence minister by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in July, following his disagreement with the president's pick of a new first vice president, which was also not welcomed by Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei and some other top clerics of the country.

Earlier this month, Sadeq Larijani, brother of Iran's Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani, was appointed as Iran's new judiciary chief.

After being appointed by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Larijani said that "nobody has the right to violate the rights of the citizens and to disturb their security."
