The criminal Islamic regime murders Akbar Mohammadi under torture

Student Committee of Human Rights Reporters

On Sunday night, July 30th, imprisoned student activist Akbar Mohammadi, who was on his 9th day of a hunger strike died of a massive coronary while in the prison shower. The prison doctors were not able to revive him. He passed away in the late hours of the night, in prison.

His body has been transferred to the coroners office at a hospital in the Saadatabad area of Tehran.

On Sunday, members of the Islamic parliament visited Evin prison, where Mohammadi was being detained. Mohammadi had just been returned to his cell in ward 350 after a brutal torture session where he was black and blue, swollen and bleeding from cuts he had sustained under torture; the jailors had chained him to his bed and his mouth had been gagged.

The Student Committee of Human Rights Reporters condemns this inhumane and barbarous act and while offering condolences to the freedom loving people of Iran, holds the judiciary of the Islamic regime directly responsible for the death of this patriot.
