Abbas Amir-Entezam, has been released from prison

TEHRAN, Oct 18 (AFP) - A liberal Iranian opposition figure, Abbas Amir-Entezam, has been released from prison after spending most of the past two decades years in jail, the government-run Iran newspaper reported Monday.

Entezam, spokesman of the provisional government after the 1979 Islamic revolution, was jailed in 1981 on charges of spying for the United States.

He was freed last year after spending 18 years in jail, but was rearrested just a few months later following new accusations.

His wife, Elaheh Amir Entezam was also arrested during six days of violent riots which rocked the capital in July.

Numerous other leading opposition figures were also arrested in connection with the riots, the worst unrest here since the aftermath of the revolution.
