Arrest of Ahwazi Citizen – Sep 11, 2022
Hossein Shalibawi, an Arab activist from Falahiya city (Shadgan), was arrested by the security forces (Ettela’at).
11 Sep 2022; Hossein Shalibawi (Dorqi), 22 years old, Adel’s son, from Samud village (Akher Asfalt) of Falahiye city, was arrested at his workplace by the security forces. He was taken to an unknown place.
Previously, Hossein Shalibawi was arrested by the Ettela’at on April 9, 2020, due to cultural activities, and was released the same year with a bail of two billion riyals.
So far, there is no information about the reasons for his re-arrest.
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, but we also should add that the regime’s handling of the Covid situation proves that the regime doesn’t care about Ahwazi lives and that raises a great concern and get international attention.
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.
