Iran: Prisoner killed under torture in Ahvaz

The Iranian regime’s suppressive State Security Forces (SSF) murdered a prisoner in the southern city of Ahvaz under torture after 8 years of imprisonment, according to obtained reports by the Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran.

Shahin Rajabi Mourkani was arrested after clashes with SSF forces in Ahvaz. He spent 8 years in Ahvaz’s Karoun prison and Karaj’s Gohardasht prison.


Last week, SSF forces contacted his family to summon them to receive his body. When the family referred to the so-called Karoun Operations detention center, they were told that in exchange for receiving the body they would have to sign papers that Mr. Mourkani was killed in a car accident.

According to reports from the family, Mr. Mourkani’s body bore signs of torture. His hands and legs were broken and he had deep wounds in his head.

During the burial ceremony, SSF forces were present on the scene to discourage any potential acts of protest against the regime.
