HRANA – Founder of the Syndicate Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company, Mansour Osanloo, was summoned to the fifth branch of Karaj’s revolutionary court.
Circumstances surrounding Mr. Osanloo’s court appearance last Wednesday are not clear at this time.  However, in recent weeks  Mr. Osanloo was accused of “contact with groups working against the government” resulting in his transfer to the solitary ward of Karaj’s Rajae Shahr Prison.

Radio Farda reports that after the arrest of Mansour Osanloo in July 2007, the court charged him with working against the security of the nation and he was sentenced to five years in prison.
Additionally, it is reported that Reza Shahabi [member of the Syndicate Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company] who was arrested on June 12, 2010, was able to contact his family in a brief telephone call.
There is still no word on the fate of Saeed Torabian, member of the worker’s syndicate board of directors who was arrested on June 9, 2010.
