With greetings and high esteem, I wish you divine grace. By presenting the following account through this means of expression, I’m taking the liberty to inform you the manner of arrest, interrogation, and other issues concerning my file:
On 88/3/27 (6/17/09), while I the undersigned was resting at my daughter’s house, security forces around 1am ominously surrounded the entire neighborhood and broke into the entrance of our building, going into my daughter’s apartment with their shoes on without any warrant [for arrest]. The security forces were vulgar and rude with my daughter, son-in-law, and wife. They arrested me and brought me first to Row 209 before transferring me to Row 320 at Evin Prison.
I spent 138 days, which is four and a half months, in solitary confinement. The interrogators from the start began with beatings, blows, punching, and kicking. Initially there were seven interrogators, but after one or two months four of them didn’t come anymore, and only two or three remained to interrogate me until the final stages of the case.
Throughout the interrogation period, I passed out fifteen times during and after the sessions. The interrogations came with intense physical and psychological pressure, and I’m taking the liberty to describe some part of [that experience] as follows:
In especially proving my claims in order to reach the truth, I can make my case against the interrogators public and receive help from other people who have also endured suffering. I could introduce these victims so that the faces of these interrogators are revealed. I believe that no one has suffered from so much pressure as much as I have, since they were hostile to Mr. Hashemi Rafsanjani and placed me under intense pressure and torture because of my contact with him.
Regarding allegations [against me], I have a proposal. Realize [and achieve] some professionalism.
For alleged [financial] fraud I have been sentenced to ten years in prison, and this verdict lacks official merit. No financial authority has confirmed [that I’m guilty]—unless [those responsible] have pressured and threatened some people to confess. Any confession you receive made under such force and torture is worthless!
I humbly request you to form a non-political court and executing Article 18 for my case and for other indicted people linked to my case. I hope that it will be successful, and that my case would be examined within a legal and lawful environment. Not within a political environment abound with prejudices.
At the time of writing, it has been days since I have left CCU (critical care unit) and my medical treatment hasn’t ended. Sometimes I pass out from nightmares!
The doctors are worried about my psychological situation. Please order that I be released provided that I’ve reached full recovery—because the environment in prison is very tense and stressful for me.
Meanwhile, my medical records from my recent time at CCU and the hospital, and my time under doctor supervision, as well as my lawyer’s defense statement written for appeal which has not yet been examined, are enclosed for your appraisal.
