Elham Afkari Arrested in Shiraz

Security forces arrested Elham Afkari in Shiraz and took her to an undisclosed location. She is the sister of Iranian wrestler Navid Afkari, who was executed on September 12, 2020, in Adel-Abad Prison despite serious ambiguities in his case and worldwide outcry to halt the execution.

According to HRANA, the news agency of Human Rights Activists, Elham Afkari, Navid Afkari’s sister, was arrested by security forces in Shiraz.

Breaking the news, her brother, Saeed Afkari, wrote on social media, “My sister Elham Afkari was arrested in Shiraz, and there is no news of her husband and her three-year-old daughter Liana.”

IRGC-affiliated news agency Tasnim, however, claimed that Afakri was arrested by intelligence agents at the border while trying to flee the country.
