The Islamic Republic continues its crackdown on political activists with another arrest in Mashhad and three more in Tabriz.
Jaras reports that reformist activist Ali Razzaghi was summoned to the Revolutionary Court today and arrested.
Razzaghi had been arrested back in the post-election protests of 2009 and released on $100,000 bail. He is charged with “acting against national security, propaganda against the regime, insulting the leader and disturbing the public.”
The interrogator has reportedly told Razzaghi’s wife: “Your husband has not learned his lesson so we will send him back to prison so he will realize what it’s all about.”
Separately, the Human Rights Reporters Committee reported the arrest of three student activists in Tabriz.
Security forces reportedly arrested them at their homes on Thursday and transferred them to an unknown location.
The same report indicates that another student activist, Solmaz Alimoradi, received a confirmed sentence of one and a half years from the appellate court. She is charged with “acting against national security through membership in the Freedom Movement Organization and participating in the Ashura Day protests.”
Member of the Freedom Movement Party of Iran have been targeted for arrest in the crackdown on activists of the past two years.
