Transfer of Abbas Daris and Mohsen Daris to Sepidar prison in Ahwaz.

On the 2nd of November 1401, Abbas Daris and his brother Mohsen Daris, who were arrested during the protests of November 2019, and were transferred from Nawa prison in Mashur city to Sepidar prison in Ahwaz.

 The lawyer of these two Arab prisoners, Mrs. Fereshte Tabanian, while confirming the transfer of these two prisoners to Sepidar prison, mentioned that her client was transferred to Sepidar  prison on Wednesday morning. Fereshte added that this transfer was done without the knowledge of Daris  family and caused concern to Daris family.

 Abbas and Mohsen Daris, who were arrested in November 2019, on Saturday, October 22nd, 1401, the first branch of the Mashur Revolution Court (Mahshahr) case by Judged by “Ramin Mehman Nawaz” announced the verdict of these two Arab prisoners.  According to this verdict, Abbas Daris was sentenced to death on the charge of muharibeh by force of arms, and Mohsen Daris was acquitted.  This ruling can be reviewed in the Supreme Court of the country.

 Mohsen and Abbas Daris were arrested by agents of the Deputy Intelligence Headquarters of Abolfazl Abbas under the IRGC’s intelligence and after months of physical and mental torture and forced confessions in the intelligence detention center, they were both transferred to the famous Mashur Prison and Nawa Prison.

Over the past 44 years, Iranian regime has suppressed, tortured, and killed its people. Iranian regime has been stealing wealth of its nation while Iranian people has been struggling with poverty and high unemployment rates.

We, the Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights (ACHR), concerns, while Ahwazi Arabs, non-Persian nations within so call “Iran” face continues 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.

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 extra Judicial execution to intervene and stop the Iranian criminal regime from executing innocent prisoners that were arrested without any legal warrant.
