Free Seyed Mousavi on Bail

This petition challenges the continued imprisonment, without bail, of Mr. Seyed Mahmood Mousavi, who is being held in Metropolitan Detention Center, Los Angeles, and is, thereby, being denied the opportunity to adequately prepare for his own defense. The Honorable Judge Percy Anderson, the Honorable Senator Diane Feinstein, the Honorable Senator Barbara Boxer, and the Honorable Congresswoman Hilda Solis are hereby petitioned to take action to right this injustice. STATEMENT OF FACTS In June 2006, the home of Seyed Mahmood Mousavi, an American citizen, was raided at gunpoint by the FBI and the IRS. At the same time, the Al-Nabi Mosque, a non-profit religious, charitable, and religious organization of which Mr. Mousavi is president, was also raided. From both locations, documents, computers, and other items were taken. In the weeks following, people who frequent the Al-Nabi Mosque were questioned by FBI agents. Although the agents claimed they believed that Mr. Mousavi had failed to report income for tax purposes, the questioning did not focus on money issues. Rather, the questioning was in relation to Mr. Mousavi

Sponsor
