After an international campaign of solidarity, Iranian trade union activist Borhan Divargar has released from prison (see Solidarity 3/79 for more details).
From Worker Communist Party of Iran (Hekmatist): “The release of Borhan Divargar is an important victory for all of us and it marks a new chapter in workers international solidarity movement. Without your consorted efforts, without the tremendous pressure exerted by you on the Islamic Republic authorities this great humanitarian achievement would have been impossible.
The Islamic Republic of Iran arrested, imprisoned and tortured Borhan for his humanitarian and labour activities in a vain hope to terrorise and pacify the workers’ leaders and activists. Your active and sincere involvement in our campaign to free Borhan denied the Islamic Republic from succeeding.”
