Student leader Ali Moghtadari was released hours after his arrest on 9 July. Amnesty International is not aware of any charges against him. There is no further information on the status of the other student leaders, Reza Ameri Nassab and Arash Hashemi. The three men, all leaders of Daftar-e Tahkim-e Vahdat, Organization for the Consolidation of Unity (OCU), were arrested after holding an open press conference at Tehran University on 9 July, calling for freedom of expression, profound political reforms and the release of fellow students. Concerns remain for their safety.
