Iran: Arbitrary arrests/ fear of torture or ill-treatment/ possible prisoners of conscience

, Index number: MDE 13/147/2007

Between 20 and 30 students are being detained without charge mostly in Tehran but also other cities, following scores of demonstrations and mass student sit-ins linked to Iran's national University Students’ Day, 7 December. They may be prisoners of conscience, detained solely for exercising their right to freedom of expression and association, and it is feared that they could be tortured or otherwise ill-treated in detention.
