Saham News reports that Fatemeh Karroubi asks the Leader: "What do the disagreements between you and my husband over issues that are evident to all by now, have to do with our right to live?"

Over the past week for three nights, Basij, Revolutionary Guards and the so-called plain clothes forces have been gathering in front of Mehdi Karroubi's home engaging in "insults, harassment, disturbing the neighbours and vandalizing property."

Fatemeh Karroubi also reports that the attackers have been using "derogatory words" against Mehdi Karroubi and "writing slogans on the walls of the residential complex and the neighbours' houses."

Fatemeh Karroubi writes: "These obvious crimes are taking place in your support and in front of the security forces who do not dare to approach these attackers."

Fatemeh Karroubi condemns the policy of "attacking the family and neighbours of political opponents" and asks the supreme leader if he condones such "unethical acts?"

Fatemeh Karroubi warns that these attacks have been filmed and documented.

Mehdi Karroubi, who is one of the chief challengers of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's victory in the last presidential elections, has been a target of similar violent attacks on many occasions in the past year.

His home was attacked, robbed and vandalized in December by a similar crowd in the presence of security forces who did not attempt to stop the assailants.

Karroubi's has been attacked while travelling in his car, while visiting an exhibition and attending a funeral and also whenever he has participated in the past year's demonstrations.
