Save Ramin Hossein Panahi

On June 23th, Ramin Hossein Panahi, a member of Komala Party of Iranian Kurdistan, was shot by Iranian soldiers in Sanandaj, Kurdistan Iran, after which he was detained, for informing Iranians on human rights issues. His family and friends have not heard from him since and Ramin is denied medical care, while he has been badly wounded, and his right to a lawyer. His family also has not been informed about his whereabouts and is denied visitation rights.

We, the undersigned, therefore strongly urge the Iranian authorities to abide by international standards regarding the rights of (political) prisoners and provide immediate medical care for Ramin, grant him his visitation rights and his right to a lawyer and inform his family about his exact whereabouts.
