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.
