Iranian security forces have rearrested a general practitioner dedicated to treating injuries sustained by protesters during last year’s nationwide unrest.
Dadban, a group of volunteers who provide legal advice to activists and protesters, reported that Yaser Rahmanirad was apprehended on September 21 during a dawn raid on his home in the city of Khorramabad, in western Lorestan province.
The report said that the family’s electronic devices, including mobile phones, were all confiscated.
No information is available regarding the agency which carried out the arrest or the reasons behind it.
Rahmanirad was initially arrested last year in Mahabad, West Azerbaijan province, for helping victims of the Islamic Republic’s brutal crackdown on demonstrators.
The authorities later dismissed the charges against him and closed his case.
Following his release from detention, he continued to offer medical aid to protesters who suffered eye injuries inflicted by security forces.
