Kameel Ahmady, a British-Iranian anthropologist, was arrested from his home in the capital city of Tehran last weekend. Mr Ahmady has been living in Tehran and is well-known for the studies and research he has carried out on issues that are considered controversial in Iran. For example, he has written papers on the concept of “marriage blanc” which most countries consider to be unconsummated marriage but in Iran it is the opposite – a couple that live together but have not got married.

Recent reports state that seven people in Tehran have been sentenced to flogging, hand amputation and finger amputation in the city of Tehran. They were arrested for robbery.

Mirzazadeh, who is being held in Urmia Prison in northwestern Iran, started his hunger strike the day after being flogged. Mirzazadeh was transferred to the 4th Branch of the Sentence Implementation Department on Sunday, where he received 100 lashes.

In the summer of 1988, the Iranian regime summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in prisons across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.
