Houshmand Moradi, a Kurdish individual from Takab who has been arrested at least twice before, has once again been violently detained by the security forces of the Islamic Republic of Iran in Tehran and transferred to an unknown location.

According to a report received by the Hengaw Organization for Human Rights, on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, Houshmand Moradi, 29 years old, from Takab and residing in Tehran, was arrested by security forces.

According to informed sources, security forces entered Houshmand Moradi's family home in Tehran without a warrant and arrested him with severe violence.

The source added that the security forces confiscated Houshmand Moradi's mobile phone and simultaneously searched and inspected his family home.

In the past three years, including this recent incident, Houshmand Moradi has been arrested three times by security forces and subjected to torture and assault, with none of his arrests being publicized.

It is noteworthy that this Kurdish individual fell ill during his prolonged detention last year. After his release, he was hospitalized in one of Tehran's hospitals for a month.
