Calling the arbitrary detention of Mousavi, his wife Rahnavard and Karroubi “a matter of grave concern,” the WGAD recommended that the Iranian government “accord an enforceable right to compensation.” The WGAD also stated that the Iranian government “violated international human rights law [and] also Iranian laws” by holding the opposition leaders without charges or a trial.


Note that, Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, two presidential candidates in the disputed June 2009 election in Iran, along with Zahra Rahnavard, an outspoken critic of the government and Mousavi’s wife, have been under house arrest since February 14, 2011, when they called for demonstrations in support of the Arab Spring.
