An informed source told HRANA’s reporter, “Jaber Sakhravi was tortured severely in the intelligence service detention centre, in a way that half of his body is numbed and his right leg is shorter. He was tortured by electric baton by the security forces, so that the signs of torture and burns can be seen on his back and legs. As the consequence of these medieval tortures Jaber is suffering from kidney pain, swelling of the testicles and urinary tract pain and his eyesight has deteriorated. Tortures of the security forces were so severe that he had stomach bleeding for two months after being transferred to Karoon prison and his condition is getting worse day by day”.

He informed officers that he was diagnosed with MS, but they ignored and tortured him which caused in a stroke. Few days after being transferred to the hospital, he was sent back to the detention centre and tortures stared again, which ended to the second stroke and half of his body became numb. However, his family denied the stroke and they believe that it was a direct effect of the tortures”.
