Opposition leaders’ daughters summoned to Evin again

Kaleme Website reports that Kokab and Narges Mousavi, the daughters of Iranian opposition leaders MirHosein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard, have once again been summoned to Evin Prison for questioning.

The opposition website reports that Kokab Mousavi is summoned for Thursday February 14 and Narges Mousavi on the following Saturday.

Last Monday, the two were briefly arrested and their homes were searched. They were reportedly questioned regarding their links to Kaleme Website and their reports to the media on the condition of their parents.

MirHosein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard have been under house arrest since February of 2011, and in recent months their daughters have raised public alarm about their situation after being repeatedly denied a visit with them.

Mohammad Hossein Karroubi, the son of the other opposition leader under house arrest, Mehdi Karroubi, was also briefly arrested on the same day as Narges and Kokab Mousavi.

Kaleme reports that the Mousavi children have been threatened with imprisonment and death, and similar threats have been extended to the Mousavi sons-in-law on the telephone.

The Iranian opposition leaders have been under house arrest for close to two years without any formal legal proceedings against them, and their children have challenged the illegality of their situation and repeatedly called for their release.
