Mottaki’s Hypocritical Statements on Secret Prisons

According to IRIB News in a Joint news conference with Zimbabwean Foreign Minister, Manouchehr Mottaki asked Ban Ki Moon to publicize the answer to the letter he wrote him and referred to the former head of Human Right Council in Genève for prosecution regarding concerns about U.S secret prisons in Europe.

This request comes in a time when the Islamic Republic has established dozens of secret prisons in the years following the revolution and their existence came into light during recent post-elections protests. Currently, dozens of prisoners are kept in these places in worst conditions. They don’t have any contact with the outside world and are denied basic rights. These prisons are run by the IRGC and state Intelligence and neither the prisons organization nor any other institution supervises them. Protesters to the fraudulent elections and other prisoners are severely tortured in these prisons by security forces and in some cases, their bodies are delivered to their families.
