Mohammad Nourizadeh, who was arrested three months ago, in a telephone conversation, informed his family about his "resistance" in prison. Judiciary authorities have told his family that his ideas need to be "tamed."

Nourizadeh, has reportedly written a letter to the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, criticizing the leader's actions in the post-election events.

Nourizadeh has been arrested for the charge of "insulting the officials of the Islamic Republic."

Mousavi maintained that struggling in search of the truth has always been one of the main characteristics of Mohammad Nourizadeh's cultural activities.

While the opposition leader expressed his hopes that the detained filmmaker will be released, he added that "in the coming months everyone must try their utmost best to struggle for the demands of the people."

In his message for the New Year, Mir Hossein Mousavi has called the new Iranian year as the year of "patience and perseverance" toward the objectives of the Green Movement.
