Iran: ITF Calls for the Immediate Release of Reza Shahabi

Iran Focus

London, 20 Aug - The International Transport Workers' Federation (ITF) in a statement called for the immediate release of the political activist, Reza Shahabi. According to the statement, the Iranian authorities were asked to stop prosecuting Reza Shahabi and Ebrahim Madadi as well. Additionally, five syndicates of workers in France requested the immediate release of Reza Shahabi. These syndicates claim that the leaders of the Iran regime are responsible for Reza Shahabi and his poor health condition. Based on the statement, Reza Shahabi's health condition is already failing since he faced poor conditions as well as the inhumane treatments during his previous imprisonment.

The political activist, Reza Shahabi has been starting his hunger strike since last week in Rajaishahr Prison, Karaj to protest against the status of his case as well as his depravation to go on a medical furlough.

On the morning of August 9, 2017, Reza Shahabi went to Rajaishahr Prison to serve the rest of his time.

Nevertheless, the period of his imprisonment increased from 3 months to 17 months because of his absence. He also has to serve time for another year as he was charged with propaganda against the regime based on the case of 2014.

The prosecutor's office told the family of this political activist that he should be in prison until July, 8, 2019. The five-month conviction was illegally imposed on Mr. Shahabi due to his absence while he was actually on medical leave with the approval of the forensics.

It is noteworthy that Reza Shahabi was detained and sentenced to 6 years of imprisonment on June 12, 2010. He has undergone two surgical procedures (neck and waist) during his imprisonment since the security agents beat him during the arrest and interrogation.
