The government, judiciary, and parliament insist that they are following-up my case, but, they have kept me in the dark, labor leader of sugar mill workers Esmail Bakhshi has said on his Instagram account.

"Nobody has talked to me or listened to my testament," Bakhshi has noted, adding, "I've got nothing to say, but telling them to stop lying to the people."

Bakhshi claimed earlier this weak that he had been tortured and severely battered by the Intelligence Ministry's interrogators.

Bakhshi, spokesman for the labor union of the Haft Tapeh Sugar Cane industrial complex in Shush, in the oil-rich province of Khuzestan, was arrested on November 20, 2018, during ongoing demonstrations by workers demanding unpaid wages.

He was released on December 12 after 80 international labor organizations signed a letter addressed to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei calling for all protesting workers and teachers who had been arrested for peacefully demanding their rights to be released.
