About 2 weeks ago we posted a blog with regard to a joint committee that has been established by Mousavi and Karroubi. The committee was established in order to follow up on the rights of those individuals arrested or wounded as a result of clashes with the armed forces.
Etemadmeli (Karroubi’s official newspaper) in today’s newspaper released additional information regarding the committee:
“Ali Reza Hosseini Beheshti (son of famous martyr Beheshti) will be the official spokes person of the committee.”
“Families of the victims can conduct searches for their arrested relatives, and additionally they can now pursue legal actions through the various facets of the committee.”
“The committee is a legal organization and Morteza Olavy will be the head of the legal division.”
“The aim of this committee is to exert sufficient pressure on the judiciary and penitentiary officials in order to safeguard the release of those who have been arrested.”
“THIS COMMITTEE DOES NOT HAVE POLITICAL AMBITIONS AND ITS GOAL IS TO SERVE THE PEOPLE.”

As of today, we at NIAC have decided to stop blogging in “liveblog” format.  We will, however, continue monitoring the situation in Iran and will post information as it becomes available to us in individual blog posts.  As always, thanks for reading.
