Mohammad Mostafaei said he was pleased his wife and 7-year-old daughter were allowed to travel to Norway on tourist visas.
In August, the 31-year-old lawyer fled to Turkey then Norway after learning Iranian officials intended to arrest him. He has said he is seeking asylum in Norway, but still hopes officials in Iran will allow him to return to his practice.
Mostafaei’s wife, Fereshteh, said Thursday that she was “really happy” to join her husband in Norway. But she said she was “very worried about the future” and unsure how long the family will stay in Norway.
