Behnam Ebrahimzadeh, trade unionist and children rights activist, and Reza Shahabi, board member of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Workers' Syndicate, were visited by their families on Thursday Sept 2.
In this first visit since Behnam's arrest about three months ago, his family noticed serious injuries on his body. In his first telphone contact from prison, Behnam had informed his family about his injuries, inflicted in the hands of Islamic regime's jailers. His bail has been set at 100 million Rials (US$100,000). Behnam's family, while protesting this amount, are trying to raise the sum to release him.
Reza Shahabi has also been detained since June 12. He is in a critical health condition. His arrest order has been extended for three more months, he suffers from pain in his neck area and, while on medical leave, was kidnapped by the agents of the Information Ministry. Due to suspended medical treatment and three months' detention in Ward 209, he is now suffering from further physical problems such as backache and digestion problems.
We demand the immediate and unconditional release of all political prisoners including Behnam Ebrahimzadeh, Reza Shahabi, Mansoor Osanloo and Ebrahim Madadi.
Release all imprisoned workers and political prisoners!
