Prisoner Masoud Hosein Zadeh was summoned by the attorney for the division and viciously beaten. In protest, the other prisoners gathered at the entrance hall to the prison and declared that until their complaints were resolved, they would not return to their cells. At 2:00 AM, the director of the prison guards promised to review the situation and asked the prisoners to return to their cells. The pressures and threats continued and even expanded despite promises by the prison guard director. The Tabriz prison is in poor condition in terms of sanitation and health, with serious diseases such as AIDS and jaundice being extremely widespread.
