HRANA News Agency – Milad Akbari, Turk (Azeri) activist from Tabriz, was released from Tabriz Central Prison on the bail of 1000 million IRR. Ali Hamzehzadeh, the other inmate of the case, is still held in the Intelligence office Tabriz.
According to the report of the Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), Milad Akbari, Turk (Azeri) activist from Tabriz, was released from Tabriz Central Prison on the bail of 1000 million IRR, at about 4pm, on July 16.
Milad Akbari and Ali Hamzehzadeh, from Tabriz, were arrested on July 1, in the Intelligence office in Tabriz, after being summoned to this office.
A close source to these two activists told HRANA’s reporter: “The families of Milad and Ali, were uninformed of the fate of these two young, after they had shown up at the intelligence office. They began to get information of the condition of Milad and Ali, after going to the intelligence office, but on the first day, the officials said that they were unaware of their fates and did not admit their arrest, but after intelligence agents had gone to their house for inspection, they were confident that their children were held in the intelligence office.”
The source also told about the strike and how their families were informed about it: “The security forces who had come to Milad’s house said to his family that since the moment of arrival to the detention center, they have not eaten food and did not answer their questions. The officers have said: ‘We let them call home and you ask them to break their strike.’ However, they insisted on the hunger strike and did not respond to the question because of unclearness of the main reason of the arrest after the contact with their family.”
It is worth mentioning that at least four other people were arrested in Tabriz and Ahar on the Friday known as the “Qods Day.”
Ibrahim Nouri and Akbar Jahangirzadeh from Ahar were two of the detainees who were released on July 2.
