Prosecutor refused the extension of temporarily release of Behnam Ebrahim Zadeh

According to the blog of Behnam Ebrahim Zadeh family, labor and children rights´ activist Behnam Ebrahimzadeh had to appear in court as scheduled on April 9, to request extension of his temporarily release.
His request was refused, despite severe illness of his son, who is suffering leukemia and under treatment.
The Prosecutor supported his decision with the reason: “The Ministry of Intelligence and National Security did not approve the extension of temporarily release. We need this approval, up until now they did not contact us.”
At the same time it is said that also the request for temporarily release extension of Shiva Nazar Ahari (human rights activist), Reza Shahabi and Pouria Shapari has been rejected. It seems possible that request of Mohammad Davoodi will also be rejected.
Obviously in the run up to June’s elections this Ministry plans to bring these activists back into the prison.
