Saham News reports that Fakhrosadat Mohtashamipour, the wife of Mostafa Taajzadeh was arrested during the protests in Tehran today. Mohtashamipour apparently contacted her daughter by cell phone while being arrested. Mohtashamipour's daughter told Saham News: " I could hear my mother protesting to the anti riot police."

Fakhrosadat Mohtashamipour is the wife of Mostafa Tajzaadeh,
senior member of the Participation Front and Mojahedin for Islamic Revolution,
one of Mir Hossein Mousavi's advisers during the 1999 presidential elections and
former deputy interior minister during the reform period in Khatami's
administration. She has written many letters to the authorities of the Islamic
Republic protesting the illegal arrest and incarceration of her husband over the
past one and a half years.
Tajzadeh himself was arrested the day after the disputed presidential election last June, and despite all the pressure during the 9 months illegal imprisonment never gave up on his views on defending justice and freedom. Tajzadeh did not even defend himself in the show trials that was staged by the government in order to prove the illegitimacy of these trials.
