According to reports, agents of the Intelligence Agency have transferred all the prisoners they had arrested months ago on espionage charges from the public cellblock to cellblocks run by the Ministry of Intelligence to get new confessions out of them.
After Minister of Intelligence Moslehi announced that 30 CIA spies had been arrested in Iran, intelligence interrogators have put pressure on a number of prisoners, including some prisoners who have been in prison for more than a year, to force them to make new televised confessions. In the last few nights, state-run TV has broadcasted the confessions of some of these prisoners forced out of them when they were initially arrested.
