Communiqué number16 from the Reza Shahabi Defence Committee
I have heard that an award for human rights in the field of labour has been dedicated to me and delivered to a person named “ Mehdi Kouhestani”. I would like to announce publicly that neither me nor my family and friends, who believe in workers' independence, were aware of this event.
It is also necessary to explain that “Mehdi Kouhestani” is neither my representative nor a like-minded person.
Lastly, I would like to ask my friends and all workers and workers' organizations to discuss all cases only with my defense committee.
