Political Detainee Ramin Haeri Remains in Detention for Over 120 Days of Uncertainty

Javad (Ramin) Haeri, a political detainee, has remained in Vakilabad Prison in Mashhad for nearly four months since his arrest by security forces. He has been co-housed with prisoners of violent crime, which violates prison rules dictating the separation of prisoners based on the nature of their offenses.

According to HRANA, Mr. Haeri continues to be held in uncertainty alongside violent offenders in Ward Five of Vakilabad Prison, despite 121 days having passed since his arrest. Haeri has been charged in Branch 906 of the Public and Revolutionary Prosecutor’s Office of Mashhad with multiple accusations, including “insulting the Supreme Leader,” “propaganda against the regime,” and “disturbing public opinion.” However, no court session has been held for him so far.

Haeri was arrested by Ministry of Intelligence agents at his home in Mashhad on February 27, 2024, and was taken to The Ministry of Intelligence’s detention facility in the city.

He was eventually transferred to Vakilabad Prison, Mashhad, on March 28, 2024.

Previously, a source close to the family of this political detainee told HRANA: “Despite providing the bail, the officials at the Prosecutor’s Office of Mashhad are refusing his release.”
