Akbar Amini summoned by phone to appear at the Ministry of Intelligence

Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Akbar Amini, member of Saraye Ahl-e Ghalam (Association of Writers) has been summoned by phone to appear at the offices of the Ministry of Intelligence.

According to CHRR, this Green Movement activist is required to appear at the Intelligence Ministry on Monday May 20th while no reason was given for the summons order.

On April 16th, Judge Salavati presiding over Branch 15 of the Revolutionary Court handed Akbar Amini a 5-year prison sentence; 4 years for “assembly and collusion against national security,” and one year for “propaganda against the regime,” along with a 5-year ban from membership in any political party or group, and activity in any Internet or media outlet. A one-year suspended term from a previous sentencing was also enforced, requiring him to spend a total of 6 years in prison.

Akbar Amini was among a group of writers who were detained on October 30, 2012 when security agents raided a gathering of the Saraye Ahl-e Ghalam (Association of Writers) and arrested around 70 members. Most were later released but 17 members were transferred to Evin prison.

On February 14, 2011 (25 Bahman), when Akbar Amini climbed on top of a crane and waved a green cloth in an act of protest, he was violently arrested by agents of the Intelligence Ministry.
