Iran: New charges brought against political prisoner

Ali Moezzi

On Sunday July 30, political prisoner Ali Moezi, who is detained in the Greater Tehran Prison, was interrogated. In addition to the previous charges brought against him including spreading propaganda against the government via the internet, he was charged with having affiliations with the case of Mr. Ahmad Montazeri (Ayatollah Montazeri’s son who was detained for exposing a tape of his father talking against the 1988 massacre of political prisoners). Mr. Moezi denied the allegations saying that he did not know what they were talking about and that this was an excuse to bring new charges against him. He was once again returned to prison after the interrogations.
