Bahram Hassaninejad, the last of the detained workers from Chadormalu Mine, was released on bail on Wednesday February 5.

The mine workers’ association told ILNA that Hassaninejad was released late Wednesday.

Last November, 800 workers from the Chadormalu Mine began to protest inequitable pay rates and the calculation of their benefits.

The protests led to the firing of Hassaninejad, who is the workers’ representative, which intensified the protests and led to strikes.

Recently, dozens of workers were arrested to end the strikes, a move that was highly criticized by the Ardkan MP.

Although the workers have been released, Iran’s prosecutor general has announced that the judiciary will not tolerate any form of disruptions of public order and national security, even if they are “dressed up as labour protests.”
