RAHANA: On Sunday night, the security forces raided the house of Habibollah Latifi and detained his family after searching the house. His 3 sisters, 3 brothers, father and sister in law are among the detainees.
There has been no information as to the reason for the arrests but there are concerns since the arrests have taken place after the execution was halted.
The execution which was opposed by many activists was not carried out yesterday after the sit-in of his family and a group of people next to prison.
The head of the prison had told his family that they would be able to visit him upon the resume of office hours.
Habibollah Latifi was arrested on October 21, 2007 and was tortured for four months in solitary confinement. On June 30, 2008, has was sentenced to death during a short court session which was held at the first branch of the Sanandaj Revolutionary Court presided by Judje Hasan Babai in the absence of any family members. He was convicted of crimes against national security and Moharebeh (waging war against God) based on Verse 33 of Maedeh (Quaran), first, third, and fifth chapter of the Imam Khomeini’s book (Tahrirol masael) as well as codes 183, 186, 190 and 191 of Islamic penal code.
Following his objection to the unlawful verdict, on January 29, 2009, the sentence was upheld by the appeals court. After the transfer of this case to the Supreme Court, the sentence was once again upheld on April 5, 2009 and he is currently being held at Sanandaj prison.
