Mohammad Ezlati Moghadam, Head of Mousavi's Isargaran (Veterans) Committee in the 2009 Election Campaign and a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war himself, was arrested last Wednesday November 10th by security officers after attending a meeting by a number of commanders of the Iran-Iraq war with Mir Hossein Mousavi.

It has been reported that after his arrest, Sardar (commander) Moghadam was allowed a brief telephone conversation with his family. Sardar Moghadam is a former member of the Political Bureau of the IRGC; a veteran of the Iran-Iraq war and Head of the Ministry of Defense's Air Fair.
It is worth mentioning that in the recent months many other individuals from Mousavi's inner circle have been arrested, including Hamid Mohseni, the Head of Mousavi's Office who is still deprived of visitation rights, two months after his arrest.
The arrest of the Head of Mousavi's Isargaran Committee in the 2009 Election Campaign took place after a number of commanders of the Iran-Iraq war had visited with Mousavi. The restrictions upon Mousavi have increased manifold in the past few months; not only are individuals prevented from seeing him, but many have also been arrested upon leaving his residence.
