New Conditions of Mousavi and Karroubi’s House-Arrest

Hossein Karroubi, son of Mehdi Karroubi has announced that Mehdi Karroubi and Mir-Hossein Mousavi have been allowed to exit their houses once a week and visit a friend or a family member in the past two months.

According to Hossein Karroubi, “the names of the people visited must be confirmed by the security authorities” and that “a committee or a board decides who can Mehdi Karroubi meet”.

After these changes, Mehdi Karroubi told an authority that he wished to start “by visiting the families of the martyrs.” According to Hossein, “during this time they have visited the houses of several martyrs and one of their friends.” He also denied any gift giving by Mehdi Karroubi to any of the families visited.

He also mentioned that the immediate family, including daughters-in-law, children, and grandchildren, “can visit with him anytime they want, but “the security forces hold the key to the house, and we don’t have a key.” He says that the security forces are stationed inside Karroubi’s house.

The children of Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard have not announced any new detail about their parents’ house arrest, but ILNA wrote today that “Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard have visited two of Mousavi’s brothers and Rahnavard’s family.”

The decisions about their house arrest are made and announced by the supreme council of national security. Last week, Mohammad Yazdi, chairman of the Society of Seminary Teachers of Qom said the house arrest is due to regime’s kindness, and that they should have been tried in court.
