GVF — Political prisoner Ramtin Ghaffari has been transferred to ward 350 of Evin prison, after enduring more than two months of solitary confinement.
According to Kaleme, a website affiliated with opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi, Ghaffari was taken to the ward after being held in ward 290 for a period of two and a half months.
Ramtin Ghaffari was arrested during anti-government protests inspired by the recent pro-democracy uprisings that erupted in the Arab world.
Ghaffari’s brother Abtin, who had been imprisoned for participating in the post-election protests in 2009, was recently freed after serving a one-year jail-term. Abtin had been sentenced to three years in prison following a two-minute court trial that left many including his family stunned at the court decision. The jail sentence was later reduced to a year following appeal.
The Ghaffari families are concerned that their son Ramtin might also face an unjust court.
Ramtin is currently being held in Evin’s ward 350 along with 75 other political prisoners.
