Sajad Shahrabi, a radio host, continues to be held in Evin prison without release on bail for a period of 34 days.
Shahrabi’s sister, Shima Shahrabi, has announced that despite a one-billion-Toman bail being granted, they have decided not to accept the bail and refuse to release him. On May 2, 2023, security forces arrested Shahrabi at his father’s residence and subsequently transferred him to Ward 209 of Evin Prison. After 13 days, he was moved to the Public Ward of the same prison.
The reasons behind Shahrabi’s detention and the specific charges against him have not been disclosed.
