IRAN: Authorities must investigate death of Benyamin Alboghbiesh - PRESS RELEASE

Amnesty International, June 28, 2019.
The Iranian authorities must urgently carry out an effective and impartial investigation into the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of a 28-year-old detainee from the Ahwazi Arab minority, said Amnesty International.
Benyamin Alboghbiesh was arrested on 26 May. Just a month later, on 26 June, his family were informed by an intelligence official believed to be affiliated with the Revolutionary Guards that he had died at a detention centre in Ahvaz, in southern Iran. The authorities have yet to return his body to his family.
