Ariyai Community News Agency – Today, Tuesday, October 26, 1401, security agents arrested 880 citizens in Gilan province during nationwide protests in September and October of this year.
According to the report of the Aryaei news agency, quoted by ISNA, on Monday, 25 October 1401, Colonel Hossein Hassanpour, the police commander of Gilan province, announced the arrest of 880 citizens during the nationwide protests of Shahrivar and Mehr by the security forces in this province.
Explaining this news, the police commander of Gilan province claimed: “Some of the perpetrators of (disturbance), (incitement), (assault against citizens), (destruction of public property) and (damage to trade unions) were arrested in Gilan.”
She further announced the handover of some of these people by filing a case to the judicial authority and added: Among these detainees, a court case has been filed for some of them, and others who had no record were released after additional police investigations by obtaining a bond.
It should be noted that in the spoken and written literature of the media inside Iran and the security and judicial authorities of the Islamic Republic, protesting citizens are called “troublemakers” and nationwide and civil protests of citizens are called “riots” and the purpose of expressing these sentences is justification and sophism. It is to suppress and spread the atmosphere of intimidation and threats in the society against the citizens
On September 31, 1401, Amnesty International also published a statement, calling for immediate global action to deal with the deadly suppression of protests against the death of Mahsa Amini.
