End Zahra Rahnavard, Mir-Hossein Mousavai and Mehdi Karroubi’s House Arrest

Free Political prisoners and prisoners of conscience

 We, along with many organizations, political and civic activists and international organizations ask for an end to the Zahra Rahnavard, Mir-Hossein Mousavai and Mehdi Karroubi house arrest.

By the order of Ali Khamenei, Pursuant to their call on the people for a solidarity demonstration with the “Arabic Spring” in February 2011, Mir-Hossein Mousavai and Mehdi karroubi and their Spouses were placed under house arrest without any legal justification.  Fatemeh Karroubi (Mehdi Karroubi’s spouse) was released in September 2011.  But Zahra Rahnavard, Mir-Hossein Mousavai and Mehdi Karroubi are still kept under house arrest in difficult conditions and are deprived of regular visits and contacts with their family members.  Their families have repeatedly asked the regime authorities to either put them on trial or release them from house arrest.

The Islamic Republic authorities not only have ignored this request but also have put the rest of the family members under so much pressure.  This very last Monday, Feb 11th, 2013, security officials arrested Zahra and Narges Mousavi and Mohammad Karroubi and after threat and interrogation released them on the same day.

Like 60’s decade, the regime prisons are filled with political and civic activists.  Most of the prisoners have been arrested and sentenced to long term imprisonment in protest to the fraud in 2009 presidential election and defending citizens’ right to vote.

We, along with many organizations, political and civic activists and international organizations ask for an end to the Zahra Rahnavard, Mir-Hossein Mousavai and Mehdi Karroubi house arrest.
