NIAC relays a new bit of drama:

According to Mowj Camp, the brother of Zahra Rahnavard (Mousavi’s wife), has been arrested for over a month.  Mousavi’s family, however, made an “ethical decision” to keep this a secret until the conservative Javan Newspaper revealed this news today.

“Mousavi’s family did not announce this news because they did not want Mousavi’s positions regarding the detainees to be considered personal or the families of other detainees to think Mousavi is more concerned about his own relatives…”

If you recall, Rafsanjani's daughter and four other relatives were also arrested and detained for a short period.
