No news on condition of former political prisoner, 50 days after arrest

According to reports, 50-year-old Majid Rezayi, a former political prisoner in the 80's was arrested in his home by agents of the Ministry of Intelligence and taken to Evin Prison's section 209. There has been no information on his condition since his arrest.
Intelligence agents stormed his home on December 31, 2009 at 5:30 am while his wife and children were asleep and arrested him. Five agents came into his home in this violent attack and several other agents were monitoring his home from the outside.
When his family asked the reason for his arrest, they were told that he was arrested because his child and brother were in Camp Ashraf and because his satellite dish was set to receive Simaye Azadi TV (banned TV channel which belongs to the opposition in exile).
The Rezayi family has gone to the Revolutionary Court and Evin Prison almost on a daily basis to get information on Rezayi's condition but not only are they not given any answers, they are insulted and threatened as well. (Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran – Feb. 20, 2010)
