Mehdi Karroubi was one of the presidential candidates for the elections of June 12th, 2009. He has been furiously protesting against the election results, which he considers a fraud. He also openly and frequently accused the government of torture and sexual violence to put pressure on arrested protesters and the Green Movement supporters. Several times already since June, Karroubi has been arrested. His newspaper Etemad Meli has been closed and during the February 15th demonstrations, his other son Hossein was arrested and beaten.
