Iranian Union leader kidnap attempt

Azarmehr reports:

After the May Day protests in Tehran yesterday, Mansoor Ossanlou, the Bus Drivers Union leader was approached by three plain clothes agents in the Haft-Tir Metro station, who tried to kidnap him. Ossanlou's companions however alerted the public to what was going on and consequently the plot to kidnap Ossanlou was foiled with the help from the public.

Ossanlou and his companions immediately lodged a complaint in the courts, but the court official, Dargahi, responded by saying "I am against your syndicate and you should join the official Islamic unions", and rejected their complaint.
