The Intelligence Ministry’s interrogators prevent the release of imprisoned former Parliament member, Mir Taher Mousavi, despite bail having been set by the Judge and posted by the family.
After Branch 26 of the Revolutionary Court informed the family of Mir Taher Mousavi last Tuesday that bail had been set at 200 Million Tomans, the family posted the bail on Wednesday and the Court issued the release-on-bail order.
After the Court informed the family they should go to Evin on Wednesday afternoon, they waited from 6 PM until 3 AM, but Taher Mousavi was not released.
On Thursday (visiting day), Mir Taher Mousavi’s wife and children went to Evin, carrying the Court order of release-on-bail, to find out why he had not been released, but were not even allowed to see him by the interrogators.
The Judge in the case has informed the family that he received a 16 page report from the Intelligence Ministry’s interrogators requesting cancellation of release-on-bail, therefor he canceled the release-on-bail order and extended his temporary detention order for another month.
Despite suffering from severe cardiopulmonary, and his symptoms of slowed speech, loosing of his voice and sever weight loss, called very alarming and dangerous by his doctor, examination of Mousavi by a pulmonologist and heart specialist has not been allowed.
Considering Mousavi’s family’s continuous warning to the relevant authorities on his deteriorating health, and their inaction in this matter, the family holds the Judiciary and the Intelligence apparatuses responsible for his health and life.
Last Sunday Kalameh had reported that due to poor health of former Parliament member Mir Taher Mousavi, the Tehran Prosecutor requested the medical examiner to visit Mir Taher Mousavi at Evin prison. But the agents at Ward 209 refused to allow the visiting doctor to see him.
Previously Kalameh had reported that the interrogators have given him two options: A Commander Madhi-style interview that was broadcast on Zarghami’s Sima TV (Seda Va Sima, the Iranian national broadcast system), or; a confession in a show trial same as those we witnessed in the show trials of 2009.
