Source: al-Arabiya

The son of Mehdi Karroubi, one leaders of the Green Wave Movement, was condemned to six months in jail by an Iranian Revolutionary Tribunal. Hossein Karroubi, was found guilty of having published the text of the letter that his father has sent to President Rouhani. In the letter, which was sent last year, Mehdi Karroubi asked to Rouhani to receive an open trial. It is important to remember that, since 2011, the two leaders of the Green Wave Movement, Mehdi Karroubi and Mir Hossein Mousavi, are under house arrest, for being “seditionist and traitors”. Despite the regime’s verbal attacks, no legal action was taken against them until now.
