The verdicts were communicated to the three Arab citizens imprisoned in Masjed Soleyman Prison in recent days.

The human rights activist also added: “Earlier, Raad Hamdani, Qusay Khosraji and Sajjad Dobat arrest date was announced as June 6th, 2020, but here I announce that the correct date for their arrest of these is during November 2019 protests. “
