Savage attack of the regime’s thugs on political prisoners

The Tudeh Part of Iran strongly condemns this inhuman and savage attack of the regime’s thugs and calls on all human rights and humanitarian organizations as well as progressive forces and parties around the world to raise their voices against these actions of Iranian regime.

 

Based on the latest reports, on Thursday 17th April the theocratic regime’s thugs and forces of dictatorship and darkness attacked the political prisoners in Evin prison, causing severe injuries. Although the regime’s judiciary officials initially denied this, in a letter that was reported on the “Kalameh” website, 74 political prisoners at Evin prison, expressed their willingness to testify on how the security forces attacked and beat the inmates of ward 350 of Evin prison.
Based on these reports, early in the morning of Thursday 17th April, the anti-riot guard forces along with plain- clothed forces, some of which wore glasses and had covered their faces, purposely attacked political prisoners who are supporters of the “Mujahidin Khalgh of Iran” forcing them to go through a human tunnel in which they were severely beaten with batons. After the guards raided the cells of these prisoners, prisoners in other cells protested against the attacks and fought back. Security forces even beat elderly prisoners. Taghi Rahmani, a well known national-religious activist who had served time in section 350 of Evin prison told “60minutes” of BBC newscast that the purpose of the attack by prison guards was to create fear and awe and above all to send a message to human right groups and the Rouhani government. A number of prisoners’ families today gathered in front of the Islamic Revolution Prosecutor’s office and demanded an explanation from judiciary officials.
The Tudeh Part of Iran strongly condemns this inhuman and savage attack of the regime’s thugs and calls on all human rights and humanitarian organizations as well as progressive forces and parties around the world to raise their voices against these actions of Iranian regime.
