London, 14 Jul - The Iranian authorities recently arranged a rare visit for representatives of up to 45 foreign diplomatic missions from Europe, Asia, Africa and South America, to see the notorious Evin prison. Tehran conceded that the tour was an exhibit meant to counter negative reports about the prison, and display what they called the “excellent facilities”, including an in-house beauty salon, gym, library and restaurant.

London, 14 Jul - The Iranian Regime invited the ambassadors of 45 foreign countries to take a tour of the notorious Evin prison in Tehran, last week, to see how the Regime treats prisoners.

However, there is one massive problem with this: it was all planned by the Regime.

So, the Regime had time to relocate the prisoners which they had beaten, to close off the wing with the political prisoners, and to threaten the other prisoners into compliance in order to make the Regime look as good as possible.

London, 13 Jul - In the summer of 1988, a massacre of some 30,000 political prisoners occurred in Iran.

For three decade this atrocity was kept silent. However, when conservative cleric Ebrahim Raisi, who was one of the perpetrators of the massacre, was selected as one of the main candidates in this year’s presidential election, the issue forced regime officials to acknowledge the crime.
