The main leader of Iran's opposition, defeated presidential candidate Mir Hossein Musavi, so far remains a free man. But that could change if hard-liners have their way. Some allies of President Mahmud Ahmadinejad are now publicly calling for the arrest and prosecution of Musavi as well as former President Mohammad Khatami. On August 2, Iran's hard-line daily "Kayhan" announced in its top headline: "Evidence of Khatami and Musavi's Treason Unveiled."

Atrianfar suggested he had something like a spiritual awakening in prison, in which he had changed his mind as "the result of understanding, an undisputable truth, that has made me awaken, and that is: If Iran's establishment is unstable and damaged, then I won't have an identity anymore."

some spiritual awakening...
