One of the workers of Kermanshah Petrochemical Company, located in Bistoun district of Harsin city, called Sajjad Amiri, 30, committed self-immolation after being fired from this company due to livelihood problems and died.
 

According to the report received by Hengaw Human Rights Organization, Sajjad Amiri committed self-immolation on Monday, September 12, 2022, in front of the Bistoun Petrochemical Company building. He was transferred to medical centers but he died due to the high percentage of burns.
