BREAKING NEWS – Opposition Leader Mehdi Karroubi’s Eldest Son Arrested
It has been reported that a representative from the office of Tehran’s Prosecutor was present along with 7 other security agents who searched the home, confiscating the personal belongings of Mohammad Hossein Karroubi including his laptop, cell phone and documents including his identity card and bank cards belonging to the Hossein Karroubi’s family. Personal computers belonging to two of Mehdi Karroubi’s grandchildren were also confiscated.
In a similarly coordinated move, opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi’s two youngest daughters, Narges and Zahra were also arrested this morning and released after several hours of questioning.
The arrests and interrogations were reportedly as a result of the joint statement published by the children of the opposition leaders on January 8th, 2013 demanding that their parents be released.
