I am requesting for the immediate release of my husband,

Borhan Dyvargar

 

To Guy Rider, the respectful director of the Free Workers Union

To Amnesty International

To all Workers Unions and all the Human Rights Organizations

 In this way I am announcing that my husband, Borhan Dyvargar, has been arrested by Islamic republic of Iranís intelligent forces, without any legal permission, at 2:00am on Sunday night, the 7th of August. Furthermore, Borhan was taken to the court on the same day.  Since then I have no information concerning him.  Borhan is a prominent member of the Bakers syndicate whom was arrested along with 6 other organizers on may 2004 for organizing the May Day workers celebration on the International Workers Day.  The hearing for Borhan and the other 6 organizers of the International Workers Day has been on ongoing bases for a year and a half and is still continuing. The Intelligence forces did not wait for the court verdict from the previous arrest and in the middle of the night they invaded in to our residence and detained him once again.  Borhan is one of the activists of the investigation committee for establishing worker organizations and one of the founders of the organization for the unemployed workers; also he is the secretary of the Society in Defense of Childrenís Rights in the city of Saqz.

In the past few days I have asked the authorities of Islamic republic to visit my husband but I have not received any reply to my request.   I am three weeks away from going into labor; the Islamic republicís forces invaded my residence late at night and in front of me and my childís fearful eyes apprehended my husband.    This was not enough for the Islamic forces; in addition to his arrest, they confiscated my husbandís computer, floppy disks and all his documents of the Association for Defending Childrenís Rights.

Borhanís ďcrimesĒ are defending his own right as a worker, defending humanity, defending children and struggle against oppression of children.  Arresting and imprisonment of Borhan is against the law, and also against human rights and I strongly condemn this act.  Also the Islamic republicís authorities are responsible for Borhanís life and any damage from this shock that has been put on my child and injuries that my fetus and I have received from this shock.   Now I request help from you and those who hear my voice to save my husbandís life and support my children and myself.

 

With regards,

Maryam Axzarpour
