Sharif Saed Panah arrested

Sharif Saed Panah board member of the Free Union of Iranian Workers was arrested at his home in the city of Sanandaj. About 20  security agents executed a search warrant at his home and confiscated his computer.
Sharif was for many years the workers representative of the Parris factory until his unfair dismissal.  Now he is workering in a housing project in the city of Sanandaj. 
He was arrested in December 2011 along with Mozafar Saleh Nia, another board member of this union and was put several times on trial.
In the latest trial of Sharif and Mozafar the judge announced that if they resign from the Free Union of Iranian Workers, they will be acquitted of charges. But they both rejected this offer.
Sharif was arrested yesterday while 5 Coordinating Committee members were arrested during the past few days in the city of Sanandaj.
