Mohammad-Reza Bashang Arrested in Tehran

On October 17, 2023, security forces apprehended Mohammad-Reza Bashang in Tehran and transported him to an undisclosed facility.

HRANA learned of this incident through a source with close connections to his family. Despite their repeated inquiries, judicial and security officials have yet to disclose Bashang’s whereabouts or condition.

Bashang had previously been arrested by security forces during the 2022 nationwide protests, spending five months in detention as a result.

As of now, the cause behind Bashang’s recent arrest, his current location, and the specific charges levied against him remain veiled in uncertainty, deepening concerns over his well-being and the transparency of the legal process.
