HRANA News Agency – For the second day, some of the followers of Mohammad Ali Taheri gathered in front of Evin prison within a campaign called “migration to prison” and some were arrested and transferred to an unknown location.
According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), a group of Mohammad Ali Taheri’s followers gathered in front of Evin prison and asked to be arrested, on Thursday December 15, 2016. They stated that beating Mr. Taheri and his followers is unjustifiable and announced that “if being like Mr. Taheri is a crime, then we are also criminals”.
A close source to these citizens told HRANA’s reporter that 5 men were threatened by security forces, and after they refused to leave, they were arrested and transferred to an unknown location. Then they have forced women to disperse and leave.
The identities of arrested citizens are as following: Ahmadreza Rahbar, Ali Garroosi, Hossain Daliri, Behnam Mansourian and Behrooz Rashvand.
Need to be mentioned, one day before, another group of Mr. Taheri’s followers gathered similarly in front of Gharchak prison in Varamin. It seems that some of them are also arrested and female arrestees are transferred to Ray detention centre.
