Arman Zamani

Arman Zamani, another member of the Democratic Union of Kurdish Students, was arrested on November 11 by Iranian authorities in Sanandaj.

An informed source has told Zamaneh that Zamani was arrested two days ago and so far the source has not been informed of the charges against Zamani or his whereabouts.

Zamani is the seventh member of the student organization to be arrested in the past two months.

Five of them have been released on bail but not Asad Bagheri, who was arrested earlier, or Zamani. Both detainees are electronics students at Kurdistan University and active members of student associations.

The Democratic Union of Kurdish Students has issued a statement condemning the arrest and insisting on the legality of the its activities, which its says are based on “rationality, tolerance and no aggression.”
