Political activist Hossein Kiani was arrested on Sunday April 8 in Amol, Mazandaran.
Kiani’s family has been unable to get information about the official charges against him. Kaleme reports, however, that his friends have indicated that his arrest is related to his activities on Facebook.
The source indicates that he might be transferred to the ministry’s Mazandaran office, and recent reports indicate that in the past week several reformist activists in Babol, Sari, Amol and Behshahr have been summoned to Intelligence Ministry offices across Mazandaran Province and told that “reformists should not participate in the elections.”
Iran’s presidential elections are slated for June 2013, and the reformists have not decided whether they will endorse a candidate or not.
