Prisoners at Evin Condemn Actions Against Themselves

Banooyesabz - In a statement provided to Kaleme, 41 political prisoners at Evin prison condemn the recent illegal pressure and restrictions on political prisoners at Evin’s general ward 350 following their revelations regarding the torture and death of the late Sattar Beheshti.

The full content of the statement as provided to Kaleme is as follows:

In the name of God the merciful and kind,

In recent weeks following revelations by a number of political prisoners at Evin prison’s ward 350 regarding the torture that led to the death of an innocent Iranian citizen, Sattar Beheshti, prison officials and the intelligence apparatus rather than implementing serious repercussions against the true criminals have instead opted to impose increasing restrictions and pressure on the prisoners behind bars at Evin’s ward 350.

The most recent attempt occurred on Tuesday December 25th, 2012 with the sudden and illegal transfer of Mostafa Nili from Evin to Rajai Shahr prison, an act that was strongly condemned by the political prisoners at ward 350. This illegal act was followed by yet another immoral, inhumane and illegal move in which Seyed Mohammad Seyf Zadeh, a renowned lawyer and legal expert and one of the oldest political prisoners at Evin’s ward 350 who has been suffering from a serious ailment for quite some time now, was taken to Evin’s infirmary under the pretext that he would receive medical treatment, only to be kidnapped and also transferred to Rajai Shahr prison.

The above mentioned cases are examples of the ever increasing illegal involvement by the Intelligence Ministry in the day to day affairs of Evin’s ward 350, resulting in further aggravation and tension within this ward.

While condemning such actions we urgently demand that the judicial authorities and in particular the the head of the judiciary put an end to the illegal acts that have led to the violation of prisoner rights and to return the above mentioned prisoners to Evin’s Ward 350. Furthermore, we wish to remind those responsible for such acts of the following words of God:

Koran Surah Al-Ma’idah verse 8:

..witnesses in justice, do not let the hatred of a people prevent you from being just. Be just; that is nearer to righteousness. And fear Allah ; indeed, Allah is Acquainted with what you do.
