No news of Hassan Sarami after 13 days of arrest

HRANA News Agency – Although 13 days have passed since Hassan Sarami and two of his children were arrested, the family still hasn’t received any news of their whereabouts or current condition.  Sarami’s brother, Ali, was hanged on Dec. 28, 2010 on charges of being a member of Mujahideen-e Khalq, an Iranian opposition group.

According to a report by Human Rights Activists News Agency (HRANA), Hassan Sarami together with his son, Hamed, 33, and his daughter, Shahla, 29, were arrested in Tehran on June 6, 2013.  During a raid, security agents searched Sarami’s family home and seized a computer and several cell phones.
So far, the authorities haven’t given Sarami or his children permission to contact their family by phone.  Similarly, the family has been denied access to visit their loved ones in prison.
“We don’t know where they are for sure,” a family member said.  “But most likely, they are in the maximum security ward in Evin Prison.”
