Along with Haghi, Javad Kheibar, another journalist who covered the December protests, was also detained. An informed source on the issue told the Center for Democracy and Human Rights in Kurdistan that “the agents presented the arrest warrants for the two individuals and said they covered the protest in a maleficent and targeted way”.
