Iran Focus

Tehran, 18 Jun – The inmates in Iran’s Gohardasht Prison, north-west of Tehran in a collective action on Tuesday refused to go to the prison’s clinic despite their physical problems and the need to see a doctor. Their boycott of the infirmary was in protest to the insult by the prison officials who conditioned their going to clinic on wearing slippers.

Gohardasht’s prison wardens are accused of systematically harassing and tormenting the prisoners.

On 8 June the prison officials forced political prisoners in Gohardasht prison to wear slippers when they go to meet their family, but in protest the prisoners in a collective move refused to wear slippers and went to meet their family with bare feet. This move was applauded by ordinary prisoners.
