Former President Mohammad Khatami used a Ramadan speech to call for the lifting of the 29-month house arrests of opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard and Mehdi Karroubi, ”During the holy nights of Ramadan, we take refuge in the Lord praying for an even higher level of openness moving forward. We look forward in particular to the lifting of the house arrest of our honorable companions Mir Hussein Mousavi and (his wife) Zahra Rahnavard, Mehdi Karroubi and the release of the political prisoners…We must look to the future, to Iran’s future, to a prosperous future, to the security and further development of our nation; a journey that will not be possible unless we all stand together.
