Difficulty in the conflict news that the Ahwazi detainees still so far in the region, but they are being held in secret locations belonging to the security or have been transferred from Al-Ahwaz to other notorious prisons in north part of Iran.
In the similar framework the Iranian security forces arrested an advocate Sunni in town of Khoroosy in Falahiyeh city in the morning of Thursday 04/16/2015 and was taken to an unknown place.

Sources said the Mr. Abdel-Aadhim is 30 years old, single and lives with his poor family in the Khoroosy town in Falahiyeh city.
It is worth to mention that the lack of access to any information from the detainees’ families is due to threats that families received from security agents under the pretext that it will reduce the cruelty of security against detainees.
According to the Ahwazi Revolution Media Center sources, the Iranian security forces arrested Mr. Adeeb Sa’adoun Moramazy with other his friends on 18-04-2015 in the city of Khafajiyeh and were taken to an unknown place.

Sajad, 17 years old, from Houeyzeh city was brought to revolutionary court in Ahwaz capital, where judge sentenced him to prison and both Ahwazi’s Karoon and Sepidar prisons refused to accept him due to being underage and then was sent to underage detention Centre.
Ahwazi Centre for Human Right condemns the Iranian security forces arbitrary arrest against Ahwazi Arab people especially underage youth, which is an obvious violation of the article 9 of the universal declaration of human rights and article 2 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNICEF) and calls to all human rights organisations and defenders to put pressure on Iran to release all detainees that been arrest without prior notice.
