Iran: Student activist, Younes Soleimani, brutally tortured

An Azeri student activist in Iran has undergone cruel torture in prison, according to his lawyer.

The lawyer described Younes Soleimni’s condition as “extremely bad.”


“When I saw him during a visit he told me that he had suffered three strokes due to the torture he had experienced. They electrocuted him and as a result he lost consciousness several times and had to be taken to a clinic,” the lawyer added.

Mr. Soleimani was arrested on June 17 on unknown charges.
