Yassan Mousavi, one of the Tehran Bazaar activists, was arrested last week. No contact with his family has yet been made. Yassan was also active in the Mousavi election headquarters in the previous elections, and his parents were executed in the 1980s. Security forces broke down the door to Mousavi’s home and confiscated his personal effects. According to his family, the Intelligence Ministry informed them that Mousavi was being held in Evin in accordance with a one-month temporary remand. His brother, Human Mousavi, was arrested during post-election events and was imprisoned in Evin for two years.
