Imprisoned Kurdish Citizen Transferred for Unknown Reason
Hossein Kamangar, a resident of Kamyaran and relative of executed Kurdish teacher Farzad Kamangar, is currently in an ambiguous legal state, a local source told the International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran.
In January 2012, a security organization summoned Kamangar to appear, where authorities detained him in Kermanshah’s Intelligence Office Detention Center.
The source informed that Campaign that Kamangar was transferred to Dizelabad Prison:
Hossein Kamangar … was transferred to Kermanshah’s Dizelabad Prison after spending 45 days inside Kermanshah’s Intelligence Office Detention Center, known as Naft Square Detention Center. During his detention, Kamangar has been under pressure to make confessions regarding cooperating with a Kurdish party. He is currently in ‘temporary detention’ and despite promises by judicial authorities to his family to release him on bail, this has not yet taken place.
According to the source, though Kamyaran is in Kurdistan Province, over the past few years, dozens of Kamyaran citizens and political and civil activists have been arrested by Intelligence Office forces from the province of Kermanshah and transferred to the Naft Square Detention Center.
