Hengaw Human Rights Organisation Expresses Concern Over New Wave of Mass Detentions in Iranian Kurdistan

14:15 - 13 January 2021


 According to information and investigations, Iranian security forces have detained at least 23 Kurdish citizens in various cities of Iranian Kurdistan and Iran for unknown reasons.

 According to the report,  in most of the detention cases violence was used against citizens and their families , and Iranian security agents confiscated their personal property, including books, mobile phones, and computers, without any warrant or legal document or  fiat.

 Since the beginning of these mass detentions , there has been no information about the charges , the organisation that executed the detentions , the whereabouts  of detainees , and also they have been denied  accessing to their family members , which is the  minimum right  of a defendant under domestic law.
