Trade unionist Ali Nejati, a leader of the Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane Company (HTSCC) Trade Union, was arrested on 8 March by Ministry of Intelligence officers, following a raid on his home on 28 February.

Amnesty International considers him a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression and association.
