Seule la couverture de ce livre inexistant a vu le jour le 17 novembre 2002 sur iranian.com.
Toutefois, quelques sites Internet et quelques blogs ont rapporté la nouvelle suivante dans le passé, mais il ne m’a pas été possible de la confirmer. Je la publie donc ici puisqu’elle contredit l’affirmation du site iranian.com et vient compléter l’information disponible sur ce titre mystérieux:
Tintin à Téhéran
Publié le 30 novembre 2007 par Eparsa
Un homme de 38 ans est passible d’une peine de deux mois de prison avec sursis pour avoir contrefait un album de Tintin et de le vendre sur le site Ebay. Il s’agit d’une version de Tintin dont le titre est “Tintin in Téhéran” et signé soit-disant Hergé. Deux cent de ces albums auraient été vendus sur le site d’enchère dont les bénéfices entre les années 2000 et 2006 auraient rapportés la somme de 1000 € à ce quidam.
L’homme en question pretend qu’il aurait acheté ces albums aux puces et sur internet et qu’il les aurait reproduit à plusieurs centaines d’exemplaires afin de les vendre. Moulinsart, la société qui gère les droit Hergé reclame 35 000 € de dommages et interêts et une publication judiciaire sous le grief que ces parodies portent atteintes à l’image de Tintin. La délibération sera rendue le 5 décembre 2007.

This video is from June 19th protests in Tehran.
Just after June 12 election, protestators in Tehran were thoughtlessnessly acting with policemen. The calm before the storm…
This happened just after June 12 election. A joyful protest before the stormy days that followed.
Update | 2:52 p.m. According to an unnamed correspondent for The Guardian in Tehran, the family of Neda Agha-Soltan, who was shot and killed at a protest on Saturday, may have been forced out of their home:
Neighbours said that her family no longer lives in the four-floor apartment building on Meshkini Street, in eastern Tehran, having been forced to move since she was killed. The police did not hand the body back to her family, her funeral was cancelled, she was buried without letting her family know and the government banned mourning ceremonies at mosques, the neighbours said.
“We just know that they [the family] were forced to leave their flat,” a neighbour said. The Guardian was unable to contact the family directly to confirm if they had been forced to leave. […]
Amid scenes of grief in the Soltan household with her father and mother screaming, neighbours not only from their building but from others in the area streamed out to protest at her death. But the police moved in quickly to quell any public displays of grief. They arrived as soon as they found out that a friend of Soltan had come to the family flat.
In accordance with Persian tradition, the family had put up a mourning announcement and attached a black banner to the building.
But the police took them down, refusing to allow the family to show any signs of mourning. The next day they were ordered to move out. Since then, neighbours have received suspicious calls warning them not to discuss her death with anyone and not to make any protest.
A tearful middle-aged woman who was an immediate neighbour said her family had not slept for days because of the oppressive presence of the Basij militia, out in force in the area harassing people since Soltan’s death.
