Human Rights in Iran – Sunday, 21st June 2020 / Branch 3 of the Urmia Revolutionary Court, chaired by judge Ali Sheikhlou, issued a lawsuit against Hossein Abdullahzadeh, a citizen of Oshnaviyeh sentencing him to 1 year in prison.

According to Human Rights in Iran, on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, Hossein Abdullahzadeh, born in 2004, a citizen of Oshnaviyeh (in West Azerbaijan, northwest of Iran), incarcerated in ward 3 of the Urmia Central Prison, was trialled by branch 3 of the Revolutionary Court in Urmia (a city in W Azerbaijan), presided over judge Ali Sheikhlou and sentenced to 1 year in prison on the charge of “collaborating with one of Kurdish opposition parties against Iranian government”.

Hossein Abdullahzadeh was held in a security detention facility and after being interrogated and charged, was transferred to ward 3 in Urmia Central Prison on June 2, 2020.

Hossein Abdullahzadeh, a citizen of Oshnaviyeh was arrested by security forces in the city on 29th April 2020 and taken to a detention center in Urmia.

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.

In 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.
