Following the pressure and recent imposed limitations on Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, the chief of staff of Mir Hossein Mousavi’s office was arrested last night.
Currently there is no other information regarding this arrest but this recent arrest which is in continuation of previous imitations imposed on Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi and controlling all their visits and arresting those who try to contact the Green leaders; indicates that the ruling powers are trying to close in on Green leaders more than ever and prepare the grounds for their future plans.
The security guards have been stationed around Mir Hossein Mousavi’s office since few days ago and prevent anyone who tries to come to Mousavi’s office, arrest them for few hours and after interrogations force them to sign a consent that they will never come back or try to contact Mir Hossein Mousavi.
Also in the past few days Basij militias and pro-government thugs attacked the house of Mehdi Karroubi and while insulating the Green leader and his family, opening fire, brutally beating Karroubi’s head of the security protection team, smashing windows, disconnecting the landlines, damaging the water pipes, disconnecting the electricity, putting the entrance door on fire and threatening to kill Mehdi Karroubi also attacked and arrested anyone who tried to visit Mehdi Karroubi. This vary same scenario happened few days later on Eid Al-Fitr and this time official security forces were stationed around Karroubi’s house and prevented anyone trying to visit him.
