Teacher Mehdi Sheibani Arrested in Mashhad

Teacher Mehdi Sheibani was apprehended in Mashhad and subsequently transported to an undisclosed location, according to the Coordination Council of Iranian Teachers’ Trade Associations.

Sheibani had been the educator of Abolfazl Adinezadeh, a minor student who tragically lost his life during the 2022 nationwide protests.

Reports suggest that Sheibani’s arrest followed his attendance at a commemorative event on Adinezadeh’s birthday. The exact cause of Sheibani’s whereabouts, and the specific allegations against him remain shrouded in uncertainty.

Abolfazl Adinezadeh, who was a minor at the time, was fatally shot, reportedly sustaining “25 bullets to his chest and abdomen,” during the 2022 nationwide protest.
