Political prisoner Ali Moezzi, father of two PMOI members, after for two weeks of uncertainty and three times back and forth between Evin and Gohardasht prisons, was finally transferred to Gohardasht Prison on September 21. Mr. Moezzi, 67, who suffers from various diseases such as cancer, kidney failure and severe neck arthritis, has repeatedly been exiled from one prison to another and deprived of the most basic facilities and medical care.
Mehdi Farahi Shandiz, political prisoner in Gohardasht prison, has been in solitary confinement and incommunicado for three weeks. On September 2 he and a number of prisoners were severely beaten and later he was transferred to solitary confinement.
In this regards, Mohammad Mardani, criminal head of Gohardasht prison and henchman Dariush Amirian, who is the so-called internal manager of the prison and takes the stools from underneath of the feet of prisoners on gallows, are intent to increase pressure on prisoners continuously and with different methods. This includes banning visits by second degree family members or simultaneous meeting with family members, banning entry of books into prison (the condition for bringing a book into the prison is to take one out), banning any food brought by family members, banning purchase of any electric equipment from the prison store or from outside of the prison, lack of any possibility of repairing of electric equipment…. In addition to these repressive restrictions, a high number of prisoners have long been deprived from family visits and phone calls to their relatives. Prisoners also suffer from the extreme low quality of the food and high cost and lack of quality of goods sold in the prison store, as well as lack of heating and cooling equipment and shutting off all prison apertures.
The Iranian Resistance calls on international human rights organizations, especially the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Iran and Rapporteurs on arbitrary arrests, torture and the right to life, to take urgent action in relation to the Iranian prisoners, especially political prisoners.
