Shahrokh Zamani, a workers’ rights activist and a member of the Council for the Establishment of Labor Unions, is imprisoned in Tabriz. For reasons that remain unclear, he has been transferred to the unit where dangerous criminals (murderers, rapists, etc.) are incarcerated. Zaman, 47, was sentenced to 11 years in prison after being accused of, among other things, establishing an illegal group that opposes the regime, known as The Democratic Worker’s Movement, for purposes of disturbing the security of the state by organizing labor strikes and armed rebellion.
