The Speaker of Iran’s Parliament, Ali Larijani, has denied reports about a possible end to seven years of house arrest of Iran’s Green Movement leaders, say reports from Iran.

On Saturday, a family member of one of those under house arrest said Iran's top security body has approved the release of opposition figures Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi, as well as Mussvi’s wife Zahra Rahnavard, who have been under house arrest for seven years for leading mass protests in 2009.
