Mousavi, Karroubi house arrest takes time to be solved: Minister

Tehran, Sept 2, IRNA –The problem of Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi’s house arrest needs more time to be solved, Minister of Justice Mustafa Pourmohammadi said on Wednesday.

Speaking in a meeting with directors of Iranian media, he noted that house arrest of Karroubi and Mousavi is a security issue and the Supreme National Security Council should decide about it.
The issue of house arrest is not a legal case because it is a decision taken after political unrest, the official added.
Defeated presidential candidates Mehdi Karroubi and Mir Hossein Mousavi have been under house arrest since 2009.
