The Emrooz website reports that on Thursday morning, plainclothes officials raided Massoud Sepehr’s home and arrested him after a thorough search.
Sepehr, a professor of political science at the Open University of Shiraz, was arrested and sentenced earlier for challenging the 2009 presidential election results by alleging vote fraud.
Following the 2009 election protests, several members of the Mojahedin of the Islamic Revolution were arrested and sentenced to stiff prison terms. The organization was also officially banned from political activity, and recently the government announced that it will not be allowed to provide a list of candidates for the coming parliamentary elections.
Iranian reformists are being rapidly eliminated from Iranian politics in the wake of those 2009 protests, which were sparked when reformist candidates challenged the victory of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and made allegations of vote fraud.
