Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights


We are witnessing demonstrations in every city of a geographical so-called (Iran). During ten days in a row we have watch uprising to bring down the mullahs regime from power. The country has seen vast operations of random arrests involving thousands of demonstrators in all over Al-Ahwaz (Khuzestan, Bushehr, Hormozgan, South Ilam in Iranian map).

The Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights (ACHR) received lists of 278 names of Ahwazi detainees who were arrested during waves of arrests in the Ahwaz region.

Based on the lists we (ACHR) received on Saturday 6th, 2018, appears that from the 278 people who were arrested in different cities of Al-Ahwaz, there are 207 detainees from the Ahwaz capital, 26 detainees from Izeh city, 17 detainees from Abadan city, 19 detainees from Mohammareh, 7 detainees from the Falahieyh, 1 detainee in Hamidiyeh and another one in Howeyzeh.

Two demonstrators were killed in the city of Izeh and two others were also killed in the city of Masjid Suleiman due to the bloody repression of the Iranian security forces towards peaceful demonstrators.

According to official figures, the number of killed protestors in Iran reached 22 people since the outbreak of demonstrations on Thursday, December 28th, 2017, the Iranian security force arrested more than a thousand citizens where activists quoted to ACHR “The number of dead and detainees are more than the figures announced by the Iranian authorities”.

In an interview with the executive director of the Ahwazi Centre for Human Rights, Faisal Maramazi said that the Iranian authorities have arrested a large number of Ahwazi citizens in recent days. He added that we have accurate information about the lack of space in prisons and detention centres in occupied region of Al-Ahwaz, which confirms that the authorities put a large number of Ahwazi detainees in small rooms due to shortage of space.

Mr. Maramazi added, “we have precise information that the Iranian authorities using Karun prison rooms in Ahwaz that were closed in February 2015, due to the arrest of high number of detainees in recent protests”.

Mr. Maramazi called on international institutions concerned with human rights to intervene to prevent massacres against detainees, especially since the Iranian authorities has black history of how many people they have killed under persecution and torture.

According to the latest statistics quoted to ACHR, the arrests are as follows: Mohammareh (Khorramshahr) 135, Falahieyh (Shadegan), 560 people, Hamidiyeh 66, Ahwaz capital 300, Kut Abdullah 28, Tostar (Shushtar) 200, Shoa’ybia 10, Malashiyeh 50, Khafajia 45, Susa (Shosh) 35, Khalafieh (Khalf Abad) 4 students of a school, Izeh 400 people, 40 of them are women. The arrests and detention are still ongoing as I am writing this report. There is no exact news of the arrest from Masjid Suleiman, Dezful and Ma’shour city.

The detainees in Ahwaz capital been divided and transferred to broth Sepidar and Sheyban prisons. Also, all the detainees’ files and records been sent to the Iranian revolutionary courts branch 12 and 18 in Ahwaz.

Some of these arrests have been carried out in the early hours of morning by attacking the detainees’ homes and some carried out in the streets. Some of the detainees who have had a history of imprisonment due to environmental, political and cultural activities that have been carried out after summoning them by Iranian security services and then arrested them.
