ITF President Paddy Crumlin on the release of Mansour Osanloo
2 June
Mansour Osanloo set free
Mansour Osanloo, the Iranian bus union leader, was set free today after almost four years of imprisonment in jail in Iran.
Osanloo free at least
The ITF is delighted to announce that imprisoned trade unionist Mansour Osanloo was today freed from jail in Iran almost four years since his arrest and imprisonment, which set off a storm of international protest.


The Syndicate of Workers of Tehran and Suburbs Bus Company (Sherkat-e Vahed) was formed in 1968 but was disbanded by the authorities in the early 1980s. Instead, a Workers’ House and Islamic Labour Council were formed by the government and the company. In 2003, activists began to re-establish their independent union.
