Prisoner tortured under suspicions of leaking prison news to the outside

On Saturday, February 12, prisoner Ali Avaz-Zadeh who is the representative of cellblock 4 in Gohardasht Prison was taken to the Prison Intelligence Unit and was violently tortured by the head of the Intelligence Unit, Faraji, the head interrogator, Reza Torabi, and a number of prison guards. He was beaten with electric clubs and other tools because there were suspicions that he was leaking the news about the appalling conditions of political prisoners in this prison.
