The Coordination Council for the Support of Labour Organization announced on Monday April 1 that on the previous two days, the families of detained labour activists joined with other members of the public to gather in front of the Sanandaj Revolutionary Court and demand the detainees’ release.
Security forces reportedly appeared on the scene and ordered the crowd to disperse and leave the area.
The group reportedly refused to comply and finally agreed to have a number of its representatives meet with judiciary officials, who promised to conclude all investigations of the detainees by the end of Norooz holidays on April 2.
The protesters have warned they will continue with public demonstrations should the officials fail to uphold their promises.
Vafa Ghaderi, Ali Azadi, Hamed Mahmoudnejad, Khaled Hosseiny, Behzad Farajollahi and Ghaleb Hosseiny are the members of the Coordination Council for Support of Labour Organizations being detained in Sanandaj.
