Arash Sadeghi Has Entered His Fifth Month of Detention

Monday, January 12, 2015

There is continuous pressure on Arash in solitary confinement, as more than five months of his detention have passed; he is still kept in solitary confinement under on-going extreme psychological and physical pressure at the hands of Revolutionary agents of Intelligence service.

Arash who had been arrested in his shop on 6 Sep 2014, is being kept in ward 2-Alef of Evin prison. This Human Rights activist is accused of acting against national security, of propaganda against the regime and of facebook activities.

Officials are responsible for his situation after leaving him more than five months in solitary confinement in Evin.

It is worth noting: Arashís detention has been frequently extended despite his critical health condition. He has had extremely painful experiences in prisonóboth psychologically and physically when officials raided his fatherís house at 4 am on 30 Oct 2010 in order to arrest him. His mother suffered a fatal heart attack and died as a result of the shock of the raid.  

Arash is one of the students who were denied education because of his studentís activity. Many of the Iranian citizens were deprived of education and occupation because of their civil-political activities ever since the Islamic Revolution of Iran in 1979.
