The Iranian Resistance has once again called for an international delegation to visit Iranian prisons after it emerged that protesters arrested during the November uprising are being secretly held in the torture chambers of the Intelligence Ministry (MOIS), the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC), and the State Security Forces (SSF) before being moved to Gohardasht, Evin, and Greater Tehran prisons.
Here, hundreds of protesters have been torture. The Iranian Resistance provided some stark and chilling examples of this, only able to print the initials of the prisoners:
His hands were tied behind him on a chair and he was beaten with a shocker and a baton. His arms were tied behind his back and interrogators stood on his chest. He was forced to crouch under a table for hours, subjected to the worst comments. He was threatened with rape and execution if he didn’t “confess”.
He was tied to a radiator and beaten with a pipe before they forced him under a table and beat him in that position too. He was then stripped and chained in an unnatural position, whist being flogged and beaten. He was made to lie on the floor, whilst guards stood on him. He notes that many protesters around him were raped.
He was beaten whilst wearing metal shackles, which broke a bone in his leg that is still not healed ten months later.
He was hung by his arms, which were wrenched behind his back, and tortured with a shocker and a baton.
- A-M, F-M, S-M, H-R, M-A
They were beaten on the head and feet with a hose filled with small bullets.
He was tortured with batons and shockers on the sensitive parts of his body.
- G- A
He was tortured with a shocker and a baton, forced to strip, and then hit on the genitals with the shocker.
Twice the regime pretended to execute him, once shooting a bullet near to his head while he was blindfolded.
He was given a mock execution, made to stand on a stool with his rope in a noose for hours.
This underage protester was tortured with a shocker and baton, whipped, and had his nails pulled out.
The Iranian Resistance said: “[We] once again calls on the United Nations Secretary-General, the Human Rights Council, and the High Commissioner as well as other human rights organizations to take urgent action to secure the release of detained protesters who are subject to torture and execution. It also emphasizes the need for an international delegation to visit prisons and detention centers of the clerical regime and to meet with the prisoners, particularly the detained protesters.”
