Security forces arrested today a Kurdish civilian named Jalal Amini on the Mirava road in Bukan, West Azerbaijan province, and took him to an undisclosed location.

In the past few years, he was repeatedly summoned to the offices of the Intelligence Organisation of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and the Ministry of Intelligence and was interrogated for several hours.

Security forces blocked the Mirava road in Bukan, stopped Amini’s car who was on his way back home and arrested him.

Also, after arresting him the Kurdish civilian, dozens of armed plainclothes raided his house in Bukan and searched it without a court order.

There is no information about the reason for the arrest and the whereabouts of the civilian.

Amini is the husband of a former Kurdish political prisoner named Azimeh Nasseri, who was arrested twice by IRGC intelligence forces in 2020 and 2021 and was released on bail from Orumiyeh prison after a few months.
