I raised the case of Reza Shahabi of the Tehran Bus Workers Union with the Iranian ambassador on 18 August. I also raised the case of his colleague, Saeed Torabian. I expressed concern at their detention and asked the Iranian ambassador to provide further details of why the individuals had been detained and on what charges.
