Kurdish civil rights activist Anwar Hossein Panahi was summoned to Sanandaj Intelligence Bureau where he was questioned for two hours on 2 December,  a source told the Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).

Hossein Panahi was summoned to the Sanandaj Intelligence Agency while he is based in Tehran.

Panahi was arrested in 2007 by the Iranian security forces and held for six months at the Qorveh Intelligence Office. He was later sentenced to death in 2008 on charges of “Moharebeh and acting against national security.” The death sentence for the Kurdish activist was annulled following protests by the human rights organizations on 14 April, 2009. He was eventually released after seven years in prison and exiled to Tehran on the orders of the Ministry of Intelligence.

Ramin Hossein Panahi, brother of Anwar Hossein Panahi, was executed at Raja’i Shahr Prison in Karaj along with Zaniar Moradi and Loghman Moradi on 8 September 2018. More than a year after the execution of Ramin Hossein Panahi, there is no information on his burial place.
