Fifty days after the arrest of engineer, Hossein Zadeh Masoud, formerly one of the most prominent student activists from the Azeri minority, information leaked out of jail claims that his physical condition has deteriorated significantly. The ban on phone conversations with his family exacerbates his family’s concerns. Masoud was arrested by security forces in front of his home, after they beat him very violently. To date, no official information has been provided about the allegations against him.
