(JARAS): 100 days after Mehdi Karroubi was placed under house arrest, one his children, in an interview with his personal website, disclosed all information about her father’s condition, emphasizing that he is still under house arrest and rejecting all news about his release as false.
This member of the Karroubi family said that, “As a response to the false news reporting of Mr. Karroubi’s release from house arrest, and for our friends and admirers who have persistently attempted to make contact, we are announcing that, like before, he is still under house arrest. 100 days into his house arrest, Mr. Karroubi hasn’t yet left his house even once. He hasn’t received permission to use the phone to call his children, daughters-in-law, and grandchildren.” At the end of the interview, Mehdi Karroubi’s daughter added, “Of course I hope that such illegal jurisdiction will end soon.”
Mehdi Karroubi’s wife Fatemeh was granted medical release after enduring 71 days of house arrest. The house arrest began February 13, 2011.
