Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Saeed Haeri, a student activist and member of CHRR who was arrested on Saturday December 20, 2009 (along with Koohyar Goodarzi and Shiva Nazar Ahari), phoned his family for the first time on January 6, 2010 at 11:00pm.
According to his family, he was in good spirits. He said to his mother and father (who are also his attorney) that they have no legal reason to detain him and he will be released soon hopefully.

He was also a member of committee to defend the rights of citizenship in Mehdi Karoubi’s recent presidential campaign.
