OTTAWA (Reuters) - A Canada-based Iranian writer and television producer was put into Tehran's notorious Evin prison soon after his return to his home country, but is in good shape, the filmmaker's son said on Monday.

Iranian authorities arrested Mostafa Azizi, who has permanent resident status in Canada, on Feb. 1, and charged him with insulting Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, and spreading propaganda against the Islamic establishment.
