Afshin’s sister has emphasized in an interview after his death that he did not have any hearth problems. Rajai Shahr is a notorious prison with a very high security in which we have witnessed numerous questionable deaths of political prisoners in past few years. Many prisoners go though severe torture, medical neglects and gross mistreatments by security guards and prison authorities. Afshin was severely tortured after his arrest and during his interrogations.

Afshin Osanloo was 42 years old. He was a younger brother of Mansour Osanloo who is the former president of the board of directors of the Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company. Mansour Osanloo left Iran a few months ago. 

 

IASWI holds the Islamic Republic of Iran fully accountable for the death of Afshin Osanloo. All jailed workers and political prisoners in Iran must be freed unconditionally and without delays.

 

More updates on Afshin Osanloo’s tragic death and an urgent call for action to follow shortly.
