Arbitrary Arrest of Mahmoud Masoumi Continues in Jail

Mahmood Masoomi was arrested along with three others civil rights activists by Iran’s security officials on May 12, 2016. He is kept in the jail for unrealistic reasons since the arrest.

Mahmoud Masoumi, Shima Babai, Elham Rasoolibaghi and Freydoon Ahmadpoor was reportedly detained during a peaceful protest to support the Iranian researcher on alternative medicine Mohammad-Ali Taheri. The 14 detainees were brutally beaten by officials in a raid to the protest, rights groups said.

Mahmoud was taken to Fashafooyeh prison for alleged conflict with officials and then transferred to the infamous Evin prison. He was accused of the vague charges at Branch three of the infamous Shahid Moghadasi Court of Evin.

Finally, he was released on the bail 65,000$ (2 billion Rials) on June 12, 2016.

ادامه بازداشت محمود معصومی فعال مدنی
«محمود معصومی» به همراه سه تن دیگر از فعالان مدنی روز پنج‌شنبه ۲۳ اردیبهشت‌ماه، در جریان تجمع هواداران عرفان حلقه، توسط نیروهای امنیتی بازداشت شد. او پس از گذشت پنج روز بدون تفهیم اتهام همچنان در بازداشت به سر می‌برد.
«محمود معصومی»، «الهام رسولی باغی»، «شیما بابایی» و «فریدون احمدپور» از جمله فعالین مدنی بودند که در کنار هواداران محمدعلی طاهری با مطالبه آزادی این زندانی عقیدتی با برخورد نیروهای امنیتی مواجه شده و در نهایت بازداشت شده‌اند.
«محمود معصومی» متولد ۱۳۷۴ اهل گنبد کاووس، دانشجو و شاغل است، او پس از بازداشت به زندان فشافویه و سپس به زندان اوین منتقل شده است.
“محمود معصومی به اتهام درگیری با ماموران به زندان منتقل شد. قاضی پرونده به نام حسینی (شعبه ۳ بازپرسی اوین) در ابتدا وعده داده بود با قید وثیقه تا زمان برگزاری دادگاه اصلی، محمود معصومی را آزاد کند اما اینگونه نشد. او هنوز بدون تفهیم اتهام در بازداشت است.”

WHEREAS: Mahmoud Masoumi has been arrested for unrealistic reasons by Iran’s officials;

AND WHEREAS: His imprisonment is therefore ILLEGAL under Articles 5, 8, 9, 10, 11, 18, 19, 20 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights;

AND WHEREAS: His unclear situation is also ILLEGAL according to the Articles which are pointed above;

THEREFORE: We, the undersigned, demand that the international community bring all possible pressure to bear upon the Islamic Republic of Iran to honor its binding human rights by IMMEDIATELY and UNCONDITIONALLY releasing Mahmoud Masoumi from the prison, stopping his ILLEGAL arrest and dropping all equally ILLEGAL possible charges against him.
