Meysam Jolani, Akbar Abolzadeh, Morteza Safari, Majid Naghizadeh and Mansour Seifi from Ardebil, also northwest of Iran, have been summoned to Tabriz and Ahar’s courts, mostly for attending a ceremony marking “International Native Language Day” back in 2015.

Prior to this a number of Turk activists were summoned to the same courts.
