Dear Mrs. Harrison we are persistently requesting you to mobilise your support to prevent the ongoing savagery.

Maragha: According to our latest authentic information the following arrest were carried out here:

  1. Mr. Yashar Hekkak pur was raided and arrested on 25 May 2006. This young engineer was arrested earlier and was only set free after paying a bail of 80 million Tumen, a case for which we kept you informed and you duly responded by issuing an Urgent Action.
  2. Mr. Hemid Yegane pur’s house was raided on Friday 26 May 2006 at 7.00 a.m. and arrested.
  3. Mr. Davud Ezimzade was also arrested yesterday on 28 May 2006, about whom you also campaigned by issuing an Urgent Action.
  4. Mr. Mejid Pijuhi is another of our compatriot who has been arrested.

Erdebil: On top of the above, others have been arrested in this city including:

  1. The 25 years old Mr. Huseyn Sebebi was arrested on 25 May 2006 in relation to mass protests in Erdebil accused of distributing CDs and leaflets.
  2. A well known musical performer and actor called Boyuk Agha was arrested and his crime was that the sale of his CDs had reached five thousand last week and apparently his CDs have played a role in the emergence of the mass protests.

Our latest information indicates that the conditions of two of our compatriots under arrest is grave and therefore intelligence agents deny of arresting them in the first place and a have a threatening response to the families of the victims.

Once again, please do not maintain indifference to the conditions of these innocent people.

Yours Sincerely,

Boyuk Resuloglu

For and on behalf of

The Committee for the Defence of the Rights of the World Azerbaijanis
