Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Leftist student activist Arash Mohammadi was released from prison on January 10, 2013 after completing his one-year sentence behind bars.
On November 3, 2010, Security agents raided the home of Arash Mohammadi at 6 am and conducted a search of his residence. The agents detained Arash and his brother Siavash Mohammadi, and transferred them to the Tabriz Ministry of Intelligence headquarters where they were held for 66 days in “temporary detention” before being released on bail.
