Mostafa Tajzadeh

Mostafa Tajzadeh, senior member of the reformist group, Islamic Iran Participation Front had to return to Evin Prison after a five month leave on bail.

Tajzadeh was arrested following the controversial presidential elections of 2009 and was held in prison for over nine months without being formally charged. In December, he was finally given a temporary release.

Earlier two other senior members of the reformist group, Mohsen Aminzadeh and Mohsen Safai-Farahani were also recalled back to prison after a temporary release.

The return of these political figures comes after seven of them filed a complaint against a group of intelligence officials for interfering in the 2009 presidential elections.

Safai Farahani family reports that he was told to withdraw his complaint or return to jail.

Safai Farahani had announced that he will stand by his complaint and if need be, he would return to prison.

Tajzadeh received a hero's welcome upon his release in March

The seven reformists have filed a complaint based on the evidence that has recently emerged regarding a meeting at the Sarallah Base of the Revolutionary Guards of Iran delineating steps taken by the intelligence and military personnel to secure Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's re-elections and preparation to suppress the possible protests following it.

The 2009 presidential elections became a highly controversial issue in Iran followed by mass protests against the alleged fraud that brought Ahmadinejad back to power.

Numerous reformist figures as well as thousands of protesters were arrested and street protests were confronted with heavy violence by the security forces.

The government dismisses the allegations of fraud and insists that protesters are engaged in seditious activities backed by foreign elements.

The opposition denies the charge and maintains that their protests are fully contained within the framework of the Islamic Republic system and constitution.
