A Kurdish worker Isaac Rouhi has been sent to prison for serving his one-year imprisonment sentence, a source told the Kurdish Human Rights Network (KHRN).

Isaac Rouhi had previously been sentenced to one year in prison by Branch 4 of the Revolutionary Court in Sanandaj on charges of “participation in World Labor Day”.

The verdict was served on this labour activist following when he was summoned to the court on August 20. His hearing was held on August 10 without the presence of a lawyer at the Branch 1 of the Islamic Revolutionary Court of Sanandaj, presided by Judge Saeedi. Branch 4 of the Sanandaj Court of Appeal upheld the verdict of the Revolutionary Court.

Isaac Rouhi was arrested by security forces in May when he was planning to attend a World Labour Day celebration in Sanandaj with his family.

 After being held for 12 days in the Ministry of Intelligence Detention Centre in Sanandaj, he was transferred to the Central Prison Quarantine and finally released on a bail of 100 million Tomans after 32 days.
