A few hours after a gathering by the families of those detained during yesterday’s gatherings, a list consisting of 1,500 names (of detainees) was read out by court officials and it was announced that all detainees were taken to Evin Prison. Notably, detainees in Tehran were taken to the Revolutionary Court in Moalem Street and criminal records were filed for each of them. Special Forces attacked and beat the families of these detainees who were gathered outside the Revolutionary Court this morning.
The announcement of the names of 1,500 prisoners comes after the Commander of State Security Forces in Tehran announced that 150 people were arrested in the protests. (Committee of Human Rights Reporters – Feb. 15, 2011)
