Seyed Mousavi has recently been moved to a federal transfer facility and is feared to be transferred to what some have dubbed America's “Muslim-only prison” – Communication Management Unit (CMU) in Indiana.

Forwarded Alert: USA – Seyed Mahmood Mousavi is Mysteriously Transferred

On December 12, 2008 Seyed Mahmood Mousavi was suddenly transferred to the Federal Transfer Center in Oklahoma City.

There is no news of Seyed Mahmood Mousavi's conditions as he is not allowed to call his family or attorneys. No letters have arrived either.

Seyed Mahmood Mousavi will be held at the FTC for an undetermined time before he is sent to the next facility. We are greatly concerned for Seyed Mousavi's health as the prison has a record of mistreating him (see Prison Harassment [http://www.freeseyedmousavi.com/page.php?id=71]). It is feared that Seyed Mousavi will be transferred to CMU [Communication Management Unit] in Indiana.

CMU is a "medium security" terrorism unit, which the federal government established a few years ago. There are about 300 inmates in that unit, and all are Arab or Muslim. No phone calls will be allowed; only two 2-hour visitations from behind a glass will be given to immediate family members per month; and all communication must be conducted in English; mail is delayed and inmates are constantly monitored by cameras.
