On Thursday ,24th of September 2015 ,the representative of Südwind Human Rights organization and Ahwaz Human Rights Organization AHRO brought up Yousef Silavi case in United Nation ,during the Human Rights Council on the rights of indigenous people.

Südwind representative made a complaint on behalf of the daughter of Mr.Silavi who was present during the meeting of the human right council and appealed to exercise pressure on Iranian authorities to uncover the faith of the Ahwazi citizen who has been kidnapped from his home in Ahwaz in 2009.


It is worth mentioning that despite persistent follow ups and appeals to the Iranian authorities on both local and international level the family (Wife and daughters) of Mr.Silavi ,have not received a single piece of information about the faith ,the place where Mr.Silavi is being held or even confessing to abducting and holding him against his will by the Iranian authorities.


Ahwaz Human Rights Organization appeals all human rights organizations and UN institutes and especially the especial rapporteur on involuntary and enforced disappearance to pressure the Iranian authorities to uncover the faith of Mr.Yousef Silavi ,or inform his family the place where he is detained or imprisoned and relieve his family from the agony that they have been living with for the past 6 years.
