Almost a month after the house arrest of opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi and his wife Zahra Rahnavard, their daughters say they have finally been allowed to see their parents at “a home” in Tehran’s Pastor neighbourhood where their home is located.

In a letter published by, Mousavi’s daughters said the authorities’ decision to allow for the meeting to take place on Tuesday was a “great victory for the Iranian people.” They also stressed they were under strict security control during the short meeting and were barred from bringing up any political topics with their parents.

The daughters of Iran’s former Prime Minister state that following the brief meeting with their parents, they  had been reassured that their parents were “more determined than ever before to stand by their promise to the Iranian people.”

According to the report, Mousavi’s home was raided by security forces on 14 February, as massive demonstrations were being held in Iran in solidarity with the Tunisian and Egyptian uprisings. In addition, many classified documents from the period of Mousaiv’s Premiership were also confiscated during the raid.

The letter by Mousavi’s daughters is as follows:

Thank you for posting.......Mousavi's daughter is a good (satire) writer!

I am glad that she is able to get the words out:

Yet we’ve been reassured that our parents (Mousavi and his wife) are more determined than ever before to stand by their promise to the Iranian people.
