Mohammad Hadi Erfanian, an attorney at Law, was arrested


Human Rights in Iran – Today, Sunday, April 26, 2020, Mohammad Hadi Erfanian Kaseb, an attorney at law and human rights activist, was arrested after referring to the Tehran Security Prosecutor’s Office and interrogated in solitary confinement in Ward 2A due to the case opened and the plaintiff is IRGC Intelligent Service.

According to Human Rights in Iran, Mohammad Hadi Erfanian Kaseb, an attorney at law and human rights activist, was arrested today, April 26, 2020, after attending Branch 2 of the Tehran Security Prosecutor’s Office following a complaint filed by the Revolutionary Guards and is under arrest in solitary confinement in Ward 2A of IRGC Evin prison.

According to information received from an informed source, Mohammad Hadi Erfanian Kasb, an attorney and counselor at law, was arrested by the Second Branch of the Tehran Moghaddas Prosecutor’s Office a few hours ago and sent to Ward 2A of the IRGC in Evin Prison. The lawyer, who has a history of representing cases such as the case of Raheleh Rahemi pour, Marjan Davari, and Alireza Shirmohammad Ali, a political prisoner murdered in Great Tehran Prison, and some Baha’i citizens, was previously subpoenaed at Branch 4 of the aforementioned Prosecutor’s Office on March 4, 2020, but his presence was delayed due to the quarantine conditions and the pandemic Corona virus. On April 20th, 2020, he received another summon, according to which the case was transferred from the Fourth Branch to the Second Branch based on unknown and illegal reasons.
According to this informed source, Mohammad Hadi Erfanian Kasb, along with his lawyers, visited the second branch of Moghaddas Prosecution’s Office at 10:00 AM today, but the interrogator ignored the presence of his lawyers in the office and after 5 hours put him under arrest and transferred him to Ward 2A of Evin Prison which belongs to IRGC Intelligent Service (SAS). The charge explained to him is “Propaganda Against the Islamic Regime.”

The suppression of lawyers and human rights’ activists and the imposition of restrictions on their civil rights are among the most flagrant human rights violations of freedom of expression illustrated in UDHR article 19.

Individuals have the right to access a fair trial by an impartial tribunal, as enshrined in international human rights instruments, as well as article 10 of the UDHR and article 14 of ICCPR.

Article 5 of the Criminal Procedure Code stipulates that the accused shall be informed of the charges and provide 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.
