According to numerous reports, the pressure on the Green leaders in Iran is increasing. Last night security forces raided the office of Mir Hossein Mousavi, and after an extensive search, confiscated documents, computers and other items.
Since a few weeks ago, following the brutal attacks on Mehdi Karroubi’s residence by plain-clothed militias and Basij thugs, the restrictions on Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi have increased. Security forces have been stationed around Mousavi’s office and Karroubi’s residence and prevent anyone from visiting the Green leaders. Anyone who attempts to meet with Mousavi or Karroubi is taken away, interrogated and forced to sign a consent that they will not return to visit.
In addition, the chief of staff of Mir Hossein Mousavi’s office was arrested few days ago. And ever since the head of the protection team of Mir Hossein Mousavi was dismissed by the government (a couple of months ago), the protection team of Mir Hossein Mousavi has been very disorganized.
These new developments seem to suggest the governments patience has worn out in their confrontation with the Green leaders. And based on reports, the pressure will escalate against the Green leaders in the coming days and weeks.
