New wave of arrests in Iran targeting opposition PMOI/MEK supporters
In the past few weeks the Iranian regime’s Ministry of Intelligence & Security (MOIS) and the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) have been summoning and arresting a large number of active and rebellious youths, especially supporters of the Iranian opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). Relatives of PMOI members are also among those being targeted in this latest wave of nationwide crackdown. Many individuals have been sent to prison and some have been temporarily released after being threatened, paying bail and providing written obligations.
