Iranian labour activist Khaled Hosseiny, a member of the Coordination Committee for Establishment of Labour Organizations, has been summoned for the fourth time by the judiciary.

The committee’s website reports that Hosseiny was contacted last Wednesday to appear in Sanandaj Court next week with his lawyer.

Hosseiny was arrested at his home in March of 2012 by intelligence ministry officials.

After 31 days in the ministry detention centre, he was released on bail of 500 million rials.

In the past year, he has been summoned on several occasions and in his latest appearance he had to face a charge of “propaganda against the regime through writing and interviews.”
