Mostafa Evezpoor, aged 25, and his 15-year-old brother Mohammad Reza Evezpoor, both members of the Iranian Azerbaijani community, were released on or around 12 October 2006. They had been detained incommunicado since 21 September. Mostafa Evezpoor remains at liberty despite being convicted of "membership and co-operation with 'pan-Turkic' groups", and spreading "propaganda against the system". All others reportedly detained in connection with the school boycott are also believed to have been released. No further details are known about their cases.
