Tehran, Iran, Apr. 17 – A senior Iranian prison official has been appointed the warden of Iran’s most notorious prison Evin.

Farjollah Sedaqat took over official duties at Evin Prison in Tehran on Monday, the state-run news agency ILNA reported.

Sedaqat was previously the chief of judicial affairs at the Office of Prisons in Tehran Province.

His previous titles include warden of Qasr, Qezel-Hesar, and Fardis prisons.

Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a maximum security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of thousands of political executions.
