Dear President Ahmadjinejad

We are appalled to learn of the arrest of a trade unionist. We understand that Ebrahim Madadi was arrested in Tehran on 27 December.

According to reports, he is now in Evin prison, having appeared before a judge on 28 December. We understand that two Executive Board members of the union have been verbally summoned by the secret police.

President Ahmadjinejad, this is not the first time that the Iranian authorities have taken unjustified actions against genuine trade unions during the winter holidays. Less than a week ago, the trade unions condemned the arrest of Mohsen Hakimi, a member of the ‘Iranian Writers Association’ and the ‘Coordinating Committee to Form Workers Organisations,’ who was detained by the secret police for unknown charges. He is now being held in Section 209 in Evin Prison. At the same time, an auto worker, Bijan Amiri, at Pars Khodro factory was also arrested for unknown charges.

We wish to join the International Transport Workers’ Federation, the ITUC and the entire global trade union movement in strongly urging your government to release Ebrahim Madadi, Mohsen Hakimi, Bijan Amiri as well as Mansour Osanloo and Farzad Kamangar immediately and unconditionally. There is reason to have concern about Osanloo’s health as we have received reports that he has not been given adequate medical treatment during the past two months.

Thank you for your attention. We look forward to hearing your positive reply.

Roger Toussaint
President
Transport Workers Union Local 100
