Iranian prisons are operating double their usual capacity

NCRI – The Iranian regime’s judiciary minister has revealed that the number of prisoners in Iran is more than double the normal capacity.

According to the state-run website Khabar Online on Monday, Morteza Bakhtiari, who is also a former interrogator, said, “The capacity of the country’s prisons is 85,000 people, but currently, there are over 200,000 prisoners.”

“There will be temporary camps set up to reduce this number in half,” he added.

Prisoners accused of smuggling or using drugs will be transferred to inhumane camps in order to halve the prison population across Iran, according to Bakhtiari.
