Parsa Rostami, 17-year-old boy from Paveh who returned to Iran from the Kurdistan Region last week after receiving an “immunity letter”, was detained by security forces and transferred to the juvenile correction centre in Kermanshah after several days of interrogation, a reliable source told the Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).

The teenager was charged with “membership in a Kurdish opposition party” and the Paveh court has issued a bail of 180 million tomans for his temporary release.

The detention and trial of civilians who have returned to Iran from the Kurdistan Region with the coordination of the security services of Iran and the receipt of a “immunity letter” has increased in recent years. According to statistics compiled by KHRN, at least 30 Kurdish civilians have been detained, tried and sentenced to life in prison over the past three years, despite having a warrant and coordination with the security services of IRAN.
