Iranian teacher union leader Esmail Abdi was taken back to the notorious Evin prison on Saturday 20 January.

He had been released on 9 January, but this was only a temporary reprieve from his six-year sentence, which started in 2016.

The authorities refused to extend his furlough, despite his poor health which resulted from harsh detention conditions.

Esmail Abdi has been targeted for his union activism and campaigns for teachers' rights and for free public education.

He has committed no crime.
