Human Rights in Iran – Sunday, June 28, 2020 / Following the raid of Sanandaj Ministry of Intelligence agents on the residence of Faranak Jamshidi, an environmental activist and a member of Green Kurdistan Society, her home was ransacked, her personal belongings were confiscated and she was transferred to an unknown location.

According to Human Rights in Iran,, On Sunday, June 28, 2020, following an attack by Sanandaj Ministry of Intelligence agents on the residence of Faranak Jamshidi, an environmental activist and a member of Green Kurdistan Society, her home was ransacked, her personal belongings were confiscated and she was transferred to an undisclosed location.

As reported, during the arrest of the environmental activist, Sanandaj intelligence agents raided her residence and confiscated her personal belongings such as her computer and mobile phone.

Faranak Jamshidi is said to have been transferred to Sanandaj intelligence detention center for interrogation, but no reason has been identified for the arrest.

This environmental activist had previously been summoned several times by security agencies in 2018, during the extensive arrest of civil and environmental activists and the members of National Unity Party in Kurdistan province. She was interrogated several times about the activities of herself and her husband Armin Esperlus who was in custody at the time.

The suppression of citizens and the imposition of security charges against them are among the cases violating Human Rights, and is in the line of the repression of Freedom of Speech in Iran, which there is an emphasis on it in International Instrument of Human Rights, in Article 19 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as Article 19 of International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on 16 December 1966.

Also the individuals’ right to a fair trial is one of the inalienable rights accentuated in Article 10 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

most cases, the extrajudicial and arbitrary detention of citizens and civil activists with vage and trumped-up accusations is in the line of suppression of Freedom of Expression and opinion, which in International Instrument of Human Rights, in Article 19 of Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as well as in Article 19 of International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, adopted on December 16th 1966, there is emphasis on not suppressing of the individuals because of Freedom of Expression and opinion. Regarding the Principle of Freedom of Expression, every individual has the right to express his/her opinions and viewpoints in any way possible, without considering border restrictions.

Article 5 of the Criminal Procedure Code stipulates that the accused should be informed of the charges and provided access to a lawyer as soon as possible. Other defensive rights are mentioned in law, but extrajudicial actions taken by the security services violate the laws that they themselves drafted and claim to be enforced.
