Following the pressure on Majid Tavakoli to take a stance against the Green Movement and its leaders, several Shiraz Intelligence Ministry agents raided his father’s house.
Ali Tavakoli, his brother, was also summoned to the Intelligence Ministry and released after several hours of interrogation. The authorities treated his family in an offensive manner and destroyed the equipment in the house even though what they did was against the law.
Previously, Majid Tavakoli had been summoned to the Prosecutor’s office along with Bahareh Hedayat and Mahdieh Golrou and a new case was filed for them. He was put under severe pressure to take a stance against the Green Movement leaders and to deny the authenticity of the letters published under his name. The court has issued him a $200,000 bail.
