The Iranian regime has carried out a lashing sentence against a disabled political prisoner in Rasht city, according to Human Rights and Democracy Activists on Friday.
The sentence of 51 lashes against Hadi Abedi Bakhoda was carried out in Rasht prison on Monday, May 23. Mr. Bakhoda is physically disabled as a result of spinal injuries and cannot move. He uses a wheelchair to move around.
He was sentenced by a court in Rasht for failing to refer to the prison on time after a brief time out of prison.
Mr. Bakhoda spent some time in prison in the 1980s on charges of supporting the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). He was placed under brutal torture by the clerical regime.
At the time of his arrest he was shot in the spine which resulted in his disability. Despite his injuries, he spent many years in prison and under torture. He was again arrested two years ago on the same charges and sentenced to two years in prison.
