Saeed and Ehsan Rezaei, two labor activists, were detained by security forces in Rasht and taken to an unknown location.
According to the Campaign for the Defense of Political and Civil Prisoners; Saeed and Ehsan Rezaei, were arrested by security forces at their home and taken to an unknown location on Tuesday, October 19th, 2021.
An informed source told the campaign: "At the same time, the agents went to Saeed and Ehsan’s father’s house in Rudsar city and intended to arrest Marzieh Doroud, Saeed and Ehsan’s mother, who met with resistance from her and her husband and failed to arrest her.” "Security officials have informed Saeed and Ehsan’s mother that they will re-arrest her in the coming hours with a court order.”
Saeed Rezaei is a labor activist who was arrested earlier in front of the parliament during the International Workers’ Day rally in 2019.
The Free Trade Union of Iran strongly condemns the arrest of Saeed Rezaei and Ehsan Rezaei and the attempt to arrest Marzieh Doroud, their mother, and calls for their immediate release.
