The vice president of the Free Union of Iranian Workers Held IncommunicadoPublished by Tirdad on February 21, 2019
The vice president of the Free Union of Iranian Workers, Parvin Mohammadi, has been held incommunicado in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison.
During the past two weeks, Mohammadi has not been allowed to speak with her attorney or relatives on the phone.
Mohammadi’s close relatives are very concerned about this labour activist health condition, because she suffers from several illnesses such as severe migraine.
It worth mentioning that security forces arrested the secretary of the board of directors of the Free Union of Iranian Workers, Jafar Azimzadeh, and Parvin Mohammadi, on 29 January this year.
Security forces confiscated the personal belongings of Azimzadeh and Ms. Mohammadi, including their laptops and cell phones, during two separate raids, according to reports.
The Free Union of Iranian Workers has condemned the arrests and called for the immediate release of their members.
Dozens of labour activists have been arrested recently and are awaiting trial, including workers from the Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane industrial complex, which has seen repeated strikes and labour protests in recent months, with workers demanding back pay.
