Mir Hossein Mousavi: Prisoner of the day

Back in House Arrest From Hospital

Reuters: Leading Iranian opposition figure Mirhossein Mousavi, hospitalized for tests on his heart, was taken back to his house on Friday where he has been held by authorities for more than a year, an opposition website said.

Kaleme website said Mousavi was taken to a hospital in the capital Tehran on Thursday where he underwent cardiac tests. "Mirhossein Mousavi was taken back to his home prison today after he underwent some angiogram procedures," the website reported on Friday, adding that the opposition leader was in a stable condition.

Mousavi, his wife Zahra Rahnavard and Karoubi have been held incommunicado since February last year when the two leaders called their supporters onto the streets for a rally in support of uprisings in the Arab world - the first demonstrations by their pro-reform "Green movement" since street protests were crushed by security forces at the end of 2009.

Since then, the two opposition leaders have not been seen in public.

A senior advisor to Mousavi during his presidential campaign and leading exiled opposition figure Ardeshir Amir Arjomand told Reuters on Thursday that Mousavi had fallen sick on Wednesday night but was not taken to any hospital until the day after because security forces "wanted to install cameras there".

Iranian reformist Ali Shakourirad was quoted by Kaleme as saying on Friday that Mousavi was not allowed to see any visitors while he was in hospital.

"He should be under the supervision of his family's trusted doctor. It is not right to take someone to a place where he does not trust," Shakourirad was quoted as saying >>>

Are you a joker? 

"out breast"and "dignified tent"?


The Purpose is the rights and dignity of a Prisoner

by kujirasan on

The purpose and aim of this section is to protect the rights of a prisoner as a human being and give the prisoner the support and justice that any pensioner deserves irrespective of the crime, and there is no need for expressing any garbage and repulsive out breast, and indulge in baseness and flippancy.

Mr Musavi is know to have personally signed 30 000 death warrants, never the less;  he is a prison here and no one is the judge around here, so keep it clean and on course with a dignified tent and precept. 


Filthy Islamist Mass Murderer

by Pahlevan on

Mousavi is a filthy Islamist mass murderer who would be sentenced to life in prison, in a truely democratic Iran. Giving him any kind of attention would server the interest of Khamenei gang only, who wants the political alternative presented to Iranians to be as filthy as themselves so that there would be no desire for change. 


Islamist regime has not the moral authority to imprison ANYONE

by Roozbeh_Gilani on

That includes Mr. Mir Hossein Mousavi. He should be freed immediately along with the rest of political ethnic and religious prisoners.

Having said that, there is absolutely no question that one day he should be tried on charges of mass murder of Iran's political prisoners in 1980's, culminating the murder of tens of thousands of political prisoners, all members of Leftist Groups, when he was the prime minister.

He is treated much better than

other political prisoners during Imam's Golden Era, so he should not have anything to complain about.


Get him well

The UN must try Iran's 1988 murderers

The UN must try Iran's 1988 murderers


"Comparisons between atrocities are invidious, but this involved almost as many casualties as Srebrenica and was a cold-blooded killing by the state of prisoners after the war had ended. It bears some comparison to the death marches of allied prisoners at the end of the second world war – the Japanese generals responsible were sentenced to death at the Tokyo trials. So who was responsible for the Iranian prison slaughter? Khomeini is dead. But the three leading figures of his regime are still very much alive, and available to be put on trial in an international court. "


Yes, let's hope for the day

by Cost-of-Progress on

when all these murderers, "reformer" or not, are tried for their crimes against humanity.

These people are all the fruits of the same rotten tree - They are all anti nationalist islamist murderers with the blood of a lot of Iranian people on their hands.


درود بر تمام زندانیان سیاسی


 Shame on those who are selective for political freedom for ALL.

Iranians of all walks of life taking a stand for their freedom and just rights.  They are to be commanded and supported by all freedom loving folks.


  Iranians need to stand united in their support for these brave souls, support their goals and aspiration for a  free independent and prospers Iran.

  Foreign nations which thru their apartheid policy practice the same insanity and unjust detentions cannot be a good example for the future of Iran and need not to apply. 


'Hambastegi' is the main key to victory 



Get well soon

by Fred on

I hope he regains his health, I wish him long life, I wish him to be alive when his Islamist Rapist Republic is overthrown and he has to answer for the crimes against humanity while he was the Prime Minister of IRR.

 Many thousands of Iranians were murdered on his watch.
