Tehran, Iran, Jun. 23 – Iran’s State Security Forces raided the home of a student activist in Tehran and arrested him less than 24 hours before the start of the second round of the presidential elections.

SSF agents raided the home of Kianoush Sanjari and took him to an unknown location a few hours ago, according to the Student Committee for the Defence of Political Prisoners.

Sanjari was on the phone to the head of the Tehran-based committee as agents surrounded his residence threatening to break down the door.

“It seems that with only a day to go before the second round of the presidential elections, this arrest is a sign of a new wave of suppression and detention of political prisoners to come”, the committee announced.

Many Iranians fear that regardless of which of the two hard-line contenders becomes Iran’s President there will be a systematic clampdown on social freedoms inside the country.
