Head of electrical and metal workers’ union in Kermanshah arrested

Thursday, 14 September 2006

JAVANMIR MORADI, the head of the Electrical and Metal Workers’ Trade Association (union) in the western city of Kermanshah, was arrested yesterday, Wednesday, 13th September, following a visit to his house by the security forces on Tuesday, demanding that he report to their offices the following day.

Mr Moradi’s family were initially told that he had been taken to the public prosecutor’s office, but the prosecutor’s office denied having any knowledge of his detention or whereabouts.

The official reason for his arrest has been given as “organising a May Day rally” in the city this year.

Earlier in the week, four worker activists from Shaho and Kurdistan textile factories in the city of Sanandaj were also arrested, interrogated, verbally abused and threatened ahead of a planned protest about redundancies. Sheis Amani, Khaled Savari, Hasan Zareie and Jabbar Khoda Moradi were detained and questioned for four hours before being released late in the evening.

Javanmir Moradi’s family are gravely concerned about his condition, given the maltreatment that labour activists routinely suffer at the hands of the authorities in Iran.

Please send letters of protest to the authorities in Iran calling for the immediate release of Javanmir Moradi and an end to the persecution of workers for exercising their basic rights.


Please send your letters to:

1- President of the Islamic Republic, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Email: dr-ahmadinejad@president.ir

2- The Head of the Judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi. Postal address: Ministry of Justice, Park-e Shahr, Tehran, Iran
