Friday 9 April 2010

Change for Equality: Over two months have passed since Kaveh Ghasemi Kermanshahi, Campaign and human rights activist based in Kermanshah province was arrested by officials from the local ministry of Intelligence in Kermanshah. His arrest order was renewed for the second time on April 3, 2010.

Mostafa Ahmadian, one of the lawyers representing this human rights defender explained that the renewal of the arrest order for Kaveh was not legal. He further explained that Kaveh has been charged with the spreading of propaganda against the state. Ahmadian expressed concern about the situation of this imprisoned activist, explaining that there was absolutely no news about the current situation of Kaveh Kermanshahi in prison.

Kaveh Ghasemi Kermanshahi is a well-known human rights and Campaign activist who was arrested on February 3, 2010. Since his arrest he was able to meet his family only once on March 3 for a short visit, but he has had no other contact with his family since. The Iranian human rights community remains worried about the detention of Kermanshahi, as it is believed that his arrest is in association with his peaceful activities in support of human and women’s rights.
