Hassan Lahouti

Hassan Lahouti, the grandson of Ayatollah Hashemi-Rafsanjani and the son of very outspoken Faezeh Hashemi-Rafsanjani, has been released from prison. Hassan Lahouti was arrested on Sunday night as soon as he entered Tehran airport from UK to spend the Persian New Year Holiday with his family. He is a student in London.

A close source while confirming this news told BBC that Hassan Lahouti was interrogated about two cases; one about "insulting the ruling powers in his phone conversations" and second about "participating in June 25th protest (the mass protest in objection to the results of the presidential election 3 day after they were announced)" in Tehran.
