          trial violated Iran's constitution.
          “Such show trials will directly harm the system and further damage public trust,” he
          said on his website (www.khatami.ir).
          The mass trial of dozens of reformists, including senior officials such as Khatami's
          former vice-president, Mohammad Ali Abtahi, paraded in prison dress without his
          clerical turban, has no precedent in Iran's 30-year history.
          Proceedings were closed to all but state media.
          On Sunday, Ahmadinejad's media adviser and close ally, Ali Akbar Javanfekr,
          made public his resignation, which local media said had been offered two weeks
          ago but not accepted.
          After his inauguration, Ahmadinejad has two weeks to submit his cabinet list to the
          mostly conservative parliament, which may resist if he only names members of his
          inner circle.
          Meanwhile, ten more protesters who opposed the re-election of President
          Mahmoud Ahmadinejad were put on trial in a revolutionary court in Tehran on
          Sunday, the ISNA news agency reported.
          Defeated Iranian presidential candidate Mohsen Rezai called the prosecution of
          members of the security forces behind attacks on vote protesters, the Mehr news
          agency reported. —Agencies
