Iran: Appeal Case: Four Ahwazi Arab women and two children: Prisoners of conscience

, Index number: MDE 13/059/2006

At least four women and two children are currently detained by the security forces in Khuzestan province, south western Iran. They are all members of Iran's Arab minority and Amnesty International believes they are very likely to be prisoners of conscience held solely in order to force their husbands and fathers to give themselves up to the Iranian authorities or to cooperate with them and provide information about wanted Iranian Arab activists. If so, they should be released immediately and unconditionally. They are not known to have been granted access to legal representation.
