Baku. Ramil Mammadli –APA. Amnesty International issued statement related to the activists of Azerbaijani human rights movement arrested in Tehran on September 10, informing that Akbar Azad, Hasan Rahimi Bayat, Huseyn Heydari, Abbas Naimi and Sayyad Mohammadian (Ovchu Goshachayli) arrested on September 10 were released later on bail of 500 million Iranian rials (51.000 USD), but as they couldn’t pay the bail, they are threatened to return to the prison again, APA reports quoting the Amnesty International web-site.
The organization reacted to the condition of their detention in the statement: “Alirza Sarrafi, Hasan Rashidi, Said Muganli (Mohammadi) and Mehdi Naimi are imprisoned in 209th corpse of Evin prison in Tehran. They have serious health problems, but have not been taken to the hospital yet. The prisoners are allowed to be out of doors only for 30-40 minutes a day”.
The arrested Azerbaijanis were called as a “prisoner of conscience” in the statement and Iranian government was demanded to release them.
