Extensive grounds to suspect the imminent arrest of Mr. Kazemeini Boroujerdi’s supporters

Based on the Report submitted to Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran-Abadan, security and intelligence forces have collaborated with a number of government-supported rogue groups who have put the supporters of Mr. Boroujerdi’s, as well as their homes and work places, under continuous intimidation and threats of harm. This escalating harassment, committed by these rogue groups affiliated with the government, is just the latest round of persecution by the regime against Mr. Boroujerdi and his supporters. The harassment includes distributing their phone numbers, hacking their phones, and publicly portraying them as traitors to the regime and Iran‘s Islamic Republic. Many supporters in Iran’s southern cities have been systematically suppressed, including being expelled from administrative positions and jobs because of their political activities.
