The text of Hasan Saeedi’s letter in response to the broadcast of forced confessions from two French citizens
“Scenario-making and lying by the Ministry of Information and broadcasting it on radio and television are condemned!
The hardworking workers of the bus company, honorable workers of Iran and truth seekers.
I am Hassan Saeedi, a member of the jailed union of workers of the bus unit company, regarding the false and untrue claims that were aired by the Ministry of Information on Ik Sima channel, and in several cases, films in this regard have been aired on government channels. , in spite of their scandalousness, I felt it necessary to provide a clear answer for the awareness of public opinion.
1- It is certain that the French union activists, Ms. Cecil Kohler and Mr. Jack Paris, under the special conditions of their detention, have made false and forced confessions against me and the union of the workers of the company.
2- There was a public meeting of three members of the workers’ union of Waheed Company in a restaurant in Tehran with Mrs. Cecil Koehler and Mr. Jack Paris to get to know the workers’ union of Waheed Company and the French union (FO) and the feasibility of the relationship between the two unions. Since the opening of the syndicate, the union of the workers of the single company has publicly communicated with the labor unions of different countries in its agenda and has published its news. In this regard, some members of the union, on behalf of the workers’ union of the company, travel abroad at the official and public invitation of well-known labor unions, including the French labor unions, which include participating in the International Labor Organization meeting, where the government of the Islamic Republic of Iran is a member of the delegation. Its management is, they have had.
3- I strongly deny the scandalous claim of receiving money from Ms. Cecile Koehler and Mr. Jack Paris by the members of the syndicate, which was based on statements under the conditions, and accordingly, other statements of these two members of the French Syndicate (FO) about receiving money for I deny the costs of hiring people to attend rallies, financing union members, financing fired workers, financing union arrestees, and buying weapons, which is the most ridiculous claim made in this film.
4- In the published film, it is claimed that the workers of the single company and the teachers have held protest rallies after meeting with these two members of the French union (FO) and being influenced by them, and clumsily the videos of the protests before the presence of these two members of the union (FO) ) have been included in it, but by referring to the Telegram channel of the Workers’ Union of the United Company, it is clear that the video was related to the gathering of the workers of the United Company in front of the Parliament in November 2015.
5- False claims against me and Mr. Shahabi and Razavi, as well as making a case for the well-known translators Ms. Anisha Asdalahi and Mr. Kivan Mehtadi, as well as the activists of the teachers’ union, have taken shape in the form of several broadcasts of the film through various TV channels. According to the current law of the country, it is considered a crime to consider people as criminals before issuing the final judgment of the court. Therefore, it reserves the right to complain to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting and broadcast its defense to the same extent on the relevant television network.
The workers’ union of the single company has always defended the rights of the workers of the single company and solidarity with other workers and their rights in any situation.
Hassan Saeedi / October 19, 1401 / Ward 4 of Evin Prison.”

At the same time, Iran’s state television published a report linking the arrest of two French citizens to the recent protests of teachers in the country. This report accused Cecil Coller, a member of the Federation of Education and Culture of the French Labor Union, and his husband Jacques Paris of organizing “chaos and disorder” and linked Eskander Lotfi, Masoud Nikkhah, Shaaban Mohammadi and Rasoul Badaghi, teachers’ union activists, with these two people. had known
