The son of a leader of Iran’s opposition Green movement was arrested on Monday, according to website Sahamnews.
Hossein Karoubi was arrested two days after his father, under house arrest since 2011, called on Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, to step down over the handling of the shooting down of the Ukrainian airliner.
In a statement posted online, Mehdi Karroubi asked when Khamenei was told about the shooting down of the plane after it took off from Tehran on Wednesday, and why there had been a delay in informing the public about the real reasons for the crash.
