Behzad Nabavi

Behzad Nabavi, a prominent face amongst Iran's post-election detainees who has just been released on bail, has been greeted warmly by people and opposition leaders. Among those visiting Nabavi are Mir Hossein Mousavi, Mohammad Khatami, Mehdi Karroubi and Abdollah Nouri.

Nabavi was released on November 27 for 10 days on an 800-million-touman ($800,000) bail.

Behzad Nabavi is a senior member of the Mujahedin of the Islamic Revolution Organization, a reformist group which has denied the legitimacy of the June presidential elections and repeatedly condemned the post-election crackdown on protesters by the Islamic Republic government.

Nabavi has been sentenced to six years in prison; five for "activities against national security" and another year for "propaganda against the system." He was detained in the early days of the post-election protests in June and also spent a part of his detention at a hospital due to an illness.

He has been given the highest bail amongst the detained political activists.
