Ali Panah Heidari, Ruhollah Heidari, and Morteza Heidari, the father and two brothers of Javad Heidari (Heydari), who tragically lost his life during the 2022 nationwide protests, have been transferred to Choobindar Prison in Qazvin. Last week, they were forcefully arrested by special forces during a raid on their residence.
Fatemeh Heidari, Javad Heidary’s sister, confirmed that her father and brothers have been incarcerated in Choobindar Prison, Qazvin. She also revealed that her brother Morteza has been on a hunger strike for three days, despite his diabetes condition.
Last week, Fatemeh Heidari shared two videos on social media, exposing the use of air shooting and tear gas by special guard forces during the raid on her family’s home, which took place on the anniversary of her brother’s tragic death. Her father and brothers were arrested following a confrontation with the agents. She further stated that during the incident, some of her relatives, including a two-year-old child named Delvan (last name unknown), sustained injuries.
The charges against these detainees remain undisclosed.
On September 22, 2022, Javad Heidari, aged 36, was fatally shot by regime forces during protests in Qazvin. Since then, his family has faced multiple arrests and confrontations with the security and judicial authorities.
