With his six days leave from prison coming to an end and the objection of prosecutor for extending his temporary release, Seyyed Hossein Marashi, brother-in-law of Ayatollah Hashemi-Rafsanjani, the spokesman for Kargozaran Party (reformist) and the member of Mir Hossein Mousavi's last year's presidential campaign, returned to prison.

Mir Hossein Mousavi and Zahra Rahnavard visited Marashi during his prison leave. In this visit Mousavi and Rahnavard, while expressing their happiness for the temporary release of Hossein Marashi, demanded the release of all political prisoners.

Hossein Marashi was part of Mir Hossein Mousavi's presidential campaign team and as a result was arrested last year only a couple of days before the Persian New Year. He was sentenced to one year of prison for interviewing with a news website, which was considered by the government as "propagation against the establishment".
