Aydin Jafari Arrested, Javad Ahmadi, Transferred To Detention Center


Human Rights in Iran – Friday, October 21, 2022 – Javad Ahmadi Ya’kanli, a civil-society activist, is in the Detention Center of the Urmia Intelligence Department. Also security forces arrested Aydin Jafari in Moghan.

According to the report of Human Rights in Iran, on Wednesday, October 19, 2022, Aydin Jafari, a citizen of Parsabad, Moghan, Ardebil Province, was arrested by security forces and transferred to an unknown location.

It is not possible to establish contact between the family and this citizen, according to Aydin Jafari’s family, after his arrest.

Sarvabad border Police Station had sent a written notice on October 18th, summoning Aydin Jafari for questioning, however, given that the summons was not valid, he had not attended the interrogation session.

However, in other news, in recent days, Javad Ahmadi Ya’kanli, a civil-society activist living in West Azerbaijan Province, announced in a brief contact with his family that he was in the detention center of the Urmia Intelligence Department.

Despite repeated follow-ups by Javad Ahmadi Ya’kanli’s family at the Prosecutor’s Office and related organizations, they have not responded properly to the reason for the arrest of this civil-society activist.

It should be noted that Javad Ahmadi Ya’kanli was arrested by security forces at his father’s home on October 2, 2022, and transferred to the Urmia Intelligence Department Detention Center, the capital of West Azerbaijan province, for questioning.

The civil-society activist has a history of summons, detention, criminal conviction and profiling for his peaceful activism.

Between 16 and 25 percent of Iran’s population are Turkish speakers, most of whom live in East and West Azarbaijan, Ardabil and Zanjan provinces. Some of these citizens consider the government’s treatment of Turkish-speaking citizens to be discrimination, and they consider the ban on teaching non-Persian languages ​​in schools to be one of the most prominent cases of discrimination, which has always been protested by some civil activists in these areas.

The repression of citizens and the designation of accusations based on the scenario of security agencies violate Article 19 of the Universal Declaration and Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on 16 December 1966.

The impossibility of the accused to have access to a lawyer, as well as denying the person access to other necessities in a judicial process, violates Article 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and Article 9 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on December 16, 1966.

In addition, the right to a fair trial by an impartial judge, interrogator, and investigator is among the rights highlighted in Article 10 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

In Article 5 of the Criminal Procedure Law, it is emphasized on informing the accused as soon as possible about the alleged charges and providing the right of access to a lawyer and other defense rights mentioned in the law.
