Iranian women and girls detained and arrested for participation in uprising
Massoumeh Ahmadi, Arghavan Fallahi, Sara Nasseri, and Rada Fatehi are the latest victims of the regime’s persecution for their involvement in the Iran uprising.
Massoumeh Ahmadi, the fiancée of Hamed Salahshour, was arrested on Thursday, April 13, 2023, by security forces. Salahshour was killed during the Iran uprising in Izeh, and Ahmadi was detained while returning from a ceremony for Reza Shariati, a 21-year-old youth killed by security forces. Salahshour himself was tortured to death in an IRGC detention center after being arrested by IRGC intelligence forces in November 2022.
Arghavan Fallahi, a 22-year-old who was arrested during the Iran uprising in Shiraz in November 2022, is still being detained in an uncertain status along with her father and brother at Evin prison. They face charges such as “waging war on God,” “corruption on earth through widespread action against the state,” and “assembly and collusion to commit a crime,” but their indictment has not yet been issued despite two interrogation sessions.
Sara Nasseri, a 41-year-old woman from Mashhad, was arrested on December 6, 2022, for her participation in the Iran uprising. Despite her case being investigated on charges of “propaganda against the state” and “distributing protest flyers,” the investigator has opposed her release. She has been held in an undecided state at Mashhad’s Vakilabad Prison for four months.
Rada Fatehi, the sister of Ramin Fatehi, who was arrested during the uprising in Sanandaj and killed under torture, was summoned on April 13, 2023, to appear before the Criminal Court of Sanandaj. She also received another summons on April 6 for “disturbing public peace and order.
” Security forces abducted Rada Fatehi from her home on October 14, 2022, after the arrest of her two brothers, Ramin and Voria Fatehi. Ramin was killed on the ninth day of detention under torture by agents of the intelligence department.
The Iranian regime must be held accountable for its actions and the release of these individuals, along with other political prisoners, must be ensured.
