Political prisoners clash with regime’s henchmen in Iran’s Evin Prison

NCRI – Pressures imposed by henchmen and intelligence elements of the Iranian regime on political prisoners in Ward 7 of Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison and on their visiting families led to a protest on Monday by the political prisoners and their relatives.

In reaction to this protest, the security and inspection elements, along with other henchmen, attacked the prisoners and banned further visits. The henchmen openly told the political prisoners that they would like to treat them the way political prisoners were treated in the 1980s.

In 1988, some 30000 political prisoners, the vast majority members of the main opposition People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI or MEK), were executed within the span of a few months for refusing to renounce their opposition to the mullahs’ fundamentalist regime.
