The report adds that Mowlavi Abdolhamid was planning to leave Iran for a trip to Turkey when he was made aware of the travel ban.

Last year, Mowlavi Abdolhamid was also prevented from participating in the International Conference of the World of Islam Association.

Sunni prisoners in Evin, Rejaishahr and Qezel Hessar wrote a letter to the Rohani administration, calling on the president to make good on his promises to relieve the pressure on religious minorities and address the needs of Sunnis in Iran.
