Iranian Kurdish asylum seeker Adel Bahrami who was deported rom Turkey to Iran on December 26, has been transferred from Khoy prison to the Intelligence Ministry’s detention center in the city of Orumiyeh in recent days. Adel Mokaram, another politician asylum seeker who was expelled from Turkey late December, was transferred to Orumiyeh Central Prison from Khoy prison 20 days ago.
“Upon being deported to Iran, Adel Bahrami was interrogated at the Khoy Intelligence Bureau for several weeks and then transferred to Khoy prison. He was kept in the prison for a few days and then transferred to the Intelligence Ministry’s detention center in the city of Orumiyeh for further interrogation. “, an informed source told the Kurdistan Human Rights Network (KHRN).
According to the source, Adel Mokaram was also interrogated for 19 days at the Khoy Intelligence Bureau after being deported to Iran and he was then transferred to Khoy Prison.
Adel Bahrami and Adem Mokaram had been registered by the United Nations’ High Commissioner for Refugees several months before being deported.
According to reports, the two civilians were charged by Khoy and Orumiyeh security forces with “membership in one of the Kurdish opposition parties.”
Adel Bahrami was deported to Iran via Bazargan Border, along with 32 other asylum seekers on December 26. There is no exact information on the fate of other deported refugees from Turkey to Iran.
Adel Bahrami had not received any ID card several months after registering as asylum and staying in the city of Amasia, so he decided to leave Turkey “illegally”. He was detained while leaving Turkey at Antalya International Airport on December 23 and was held in detention until January 25, after which the court granted his deportation in two stages.
