NCRI – According to reports received from Iran, the clerical regime has resorted to widespread arrests in Ahwaz and Shush, in south-west Iran, and Bukan, in north-west Iran, in the month of April to create an atmosphere of fear and prevent anti-regime protests.

On Wednesday April 13, intelligence officers in Bukan, in West Azerbaijan Province, arrested three young men after inspecting their homes and their private belongings. They were transferred to an unknown location. No explanation has been given for their arrest and their current whereabouts remains unknown.
