Sawari was involved in demonstrations in the Hay al-Thawra district of Ahwaz City. The protests commemorated the sixth anniversary of the Ahwazi Arab intifada and expressed solidarity with the Arab Spring uprisings.
Sawari's family received no further information on him following his arrest and there are no known criminal charges against him.
The cause of his death is as yet unknown. His death represents the seventh extra-judicial killing of an Ahwazi Arab detainee so far this year.
