17:21 - 9 July 2021

 On Monday, July 5th, a Kurdish citizen named "Nahid Kamangar" from Kamyaran was arrested after being summoned to the city's intelligence office. 

 According to an informed source, the female citizen was interrogated in connection with the political activities of her father, Hossein Kamangar, and was transferred to the Sanandaj Juvenile Detention Centre after being refused a request to cooperate with the security forces to make televised confessions against her father.

 In April of this year, Hossein Kamangar, a Kurdish political prisoner from Kamyaran, was sentenced by the First Branch of the Revolutionary Court of Sanandaj, headed by Judge Saeedi, to 15  years in prison on charges of "Rebellion through membership in a Kurdish opposition party of Iran."  Hossein Kamangar's lawyer appealed against this verdict and his case has been referred to the Supreme Court for review.

 Nahid Kamangar's wife, Rashid Montazeri, was also detained by security forces on Saturday, January 5,  2019, and was released on bail after four months in detention.
