International Liberty Association: Iran confiscated the home of political prisoners Fatemeh Mosanna and Hassan Sadeghi, The husband and wife have been in prison for the past four years. The confiscation of the couple’s home is part of a verdict issued earlier by a Revolutionary Court in Tehran, due to an order made by the former supreme leader of Iran, Khomeini. The office which follows this order is called “Setad” and is under the direct control of Khamenei. This Setad has seized the assets of political prisoners, religious minorities, prisoners of conscience and other groups since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

According to the verdict, their shop had also been confiscated in March 2019 and unfortunately their family have no other source of income.

An informed source said: “The house of Hassan Sadeghi and Fatemeh Mosanna is located in the Tehran east. Ms. Mosanna got the confiscation notice during her temporary leave from prison.”

It worth mentioning that, Ms. Mosanna’s children and her 89-year-old mother are now homeless after the authorities confiscated their house in Tehran.

Since 2015, Hassan Sadeghi and his wife Fatemeh Mosanna have been serving 15-year prison sentences after being arrested in January 2013 for organizing a mourning ceremony for Hassan Sadeghi’s father Gholamhossein Sadeghi, a member of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK).

ILA: The government has confiscated all of the couple’s properties, including what Hassan Sadeghi had inherited from his father.
