Four political prisoners under torture for writing letter to Ahmad Shaheed

The political prisoner who were transferred from Gohardasht [Rajayi Shahr] Prison to solitary cells in Evin’s cellblock 209 are under interrogations and mental and physical pressure for writing letters to the UN Special Human Rights Rapporteur in Iran.

Political prisoners Behrouz Javid Tehrani, Saleh Kohandel, Farzad Madadzadeh and Mohammad-Ali Mansouri who were transferred to solitary cells on June 28 are under constant interrogations by agents of the Ministry of Intelligence.

One of the issues they are being interrogated and tortured about is letters they wrote to Mr. Ahmad Shaheed detailing their condition in prison. Intelligence interrogators are very afraid of letters written by political prisoners to the Special Rapporteur and have stopped at nothing to prevent this.

The families of these four political prisoners have no news on their condition and they have not been able to call or visit them since their transfer. These four prisoners are currently serving their heavy prison terms. (Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran, Human Rights Activists in Iran – Jul. 30, 2011)
