Brothers summoned to court on charges of Internet activity

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – MohammadSadegh Najafi and Mojtaba Najafi, brothers charged with creating a website in support of political prisoners and the Mourning Mothers of Laleh Park, were summoned to appear at Branch 5 of Abuzar Court in the Ariashahr area of Tehran.

According to sources of CHRR, Mohammad and Mojtaba Najafi established a computer services company that operated a website called Mam-e Mihan (original homeland) and distributed political CD’s. Due to their activities they were identified and put under surveillance by security forces.

On March 9, 2010, agents from the Ministry of Intelligence raided the residence of the brothers in an attempt to detain them but were not successful because the brothers were not home at the time. However during the raid, the agents confiscated various personal items belonging to the brothers such as their computers, books, CD’s, and satellite dish. After being unsuccessful in detaining the brothers at that time, the agents went to their place of work, sealed off the computer services company and confiscated personal property.
