Abbas Sawadi, an Ahwazi poet and writer, was arrested.
Abbas Sawadi, 30, a civil activist and short story writer, a law graduate and a resident of Hamidiyeh, was arrested by the intelligence service from his home on Wednesday morning, November 11, 2020.
Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights sources say; At 7 a.m., security forces stormed the home of Sawadi, confronting Sawadi’s grandmother, who pushed the old woman, injuring her hand.
Security forces and intelligence service confiscated Abbas’s books, personal belongings, including several mobile phones of members of the Sawadi family, and transferred the civil activist to an unknown location.
We, the Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights (ACHR), concerns, while Ahwazi Arabs faced continued oppression and discrimination, the most significant human rights issues included a high number of executions for false confession and false crimes without fair trials of individuals. Torture; harsh and life-threatening prison conditions; arbitrary detention and imprisonment; of hundreds of political prisoners, are just few examples of how the Iranian regime violates the human rights.
The Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights (ACHR), strongly condemns Iran’s plan to ban singers for their rights to express themselves. We are calling upon Mr. Javaid Rehman the United Nations special rapporteur for the situation of human rights in Iran and Mrs Agnes Callamard the UN special rapporteur on extraJudicial execution to intervene and stop the Iranian criminal regime from executing innocent prisoners that were arrested without any legal warrant.
