Death in Mullah Prisons

As we said before, its so tragic that a person dies in the Khameneis prisons, but the Islamist-Reformists, i.e. the great bastards, try to pretend that the tragic death of Hoda Saber is the first death in the Khameneis prisons (of course it’s the first death of Islamists). . In the recent days, International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran has published a report about Death in Mullah Prisons . It shows us that Hoda Saber is only one of the victims of the Islamic regime’s brutality, a regime that is the Islamist-Reformists’ beloved regime. Hoda Saber and his stupid leader, Ezzat Sahabi, and all Islamist-Reformists, betrayed the people’s blood and the people’s movement after the Ashora Day. And now, they are dying in Iran, but their death is so tragic and pathetic. Apparently they want to be a historical lesson for all traitors and mercenaries in Iran. Here are excerpts of the report:

Since 2003, 17 political prisoners and prisoners of conscience have died while in custody in Iranian prisons allegedly due to torture, medical neglect, and misconduct of prison authorities . Six of the prisoners were detained and died after the 2009 election and the ensuing crackdown on government critics and political opponents. … The Campaign believes the number of deaths caused by official wrongdoing would be greater than the 17 published in the report if undocumented cases and the cases of ordinary non-political inmates were accounted for … Below is a summary of the cases … (1) Zahra Kazemi, photojournalist , was arrested on 23 June 2003 for taking photographs outside of Evin Prison in Tehran … On 27 June 2003, Kazemi was taken to the hospital after slipping into a coma. She died in the hospital on 10 July 2003 … A special fact-finding committee, appointed by Khatami, implicated Tehrans Prosecutor Saeed Mortazavi in the death of Kazemi. … Finally the four lawyers who represented Kazemis family were threatened and eventually arrested and imprisoned on unfounded charges … (2) Akbar Mohammadi, political activist , was arrested for the first time on 9 July 1999 and released on medical furlough. He was re-arrested on 11 June 2004. He launched a hunger strike, and died while in prison on 30 July 2006. Witnesses present at Mohammadis burial said he had signs of injuries on his face, head, and body. Khalil Bahramian, one of Mohammadis lawyers, was later prosecuted on charges of insults and libel in a suit filed against him by officials at Evin Prison. (3) Valiollah Feyz Mahdavi, political prisoner , was arrested in September 2001 and sentenced to death on the charge of attempting to plant a bomb. Mahdavi began a hunger strike on 26 August 2006 to protest his case. He died in prison in September 2006 … Mahdavis body was never delivered to his family and security forces carried out his burial. (4) Zahra Baniyaghoub, student/physician, was arrested on 12 October 2007 and died in prison on 14 October 2007. Baniyaghoub and her fiancé were arrested by Morality Police in the city of Hamadan. Baniyaghoubs father arrived at the Morality Police headquarters in Hamadan to pick her up, but was told she had committed suicide thirty minutes earlier using pieces of fabric from a banner. Baniyaghoubs brother later said he spoke with her only fifteen minutes prior to the announced time of death, and that she was calm and peaceful, awaiting their fathers arrival to take her home. Baniyaghoubs family members who attended her burial reported that she was still bleeding from her nose and ear.

A few days before 4 March 2009, Saran became ill, and other inmates took him to the infirmary twice. Sarans wife said that, He must have received medical aid earlier, but he was brought to the hospital when he was practically dead. She added that she heard from his cellmates that the night before, Saran was beaten severely by prison guards. Prior to his death. (7) Omidreza Mirsayafi, blogger , was sentenced to prison in November 2008 on charges of insulting religious leaders and engaging in propaganda against the Islamic Republic. He died in March 2009. On 18 March 2009, Mirsayafi was diagnosed with very low blood pressure and was transferred to the prison infirmary. Authorities declared the cause of his death to be a drug overdose. However, his brother stated that Mirsayafis body showed evidence of a broken skull, bruised back, and bloody nose and ears. The authorities prevented an autopsy. (8),(9),(10),(11) Amir Javadifar, Mohsen Rouhoulamini, Mohammad Kamrani, and Ramin Aghazadeh Ghahremani, all protestors , were arrested by security forces on 9 July 2009 during a post-election protest, and sent to Kahrizak Detention Center. According to the report of a parliamentary committee, these individuals faced poor prison conditions, lack of medical attention, and torture. (Many analysts believed that the number of victims of Kahrizak is really much more than these 4 victims. (12) Mohsen Dogmechi, a former political prisoner (13) Hassan Nahid, communications engineer , was arrested in 2004 and sentenced to prison for revealing classified evidence. Nahid died in prison in April 2011. He had suffered from health complications and was diagnosed with cancer.

Azizpours relatives have said that in the second year of his sentence, he had two brain surgeries after suffering from a stroke as a result of torture. (16) Hashem Ramezani, a Kurdish citizen , was arrested by authorities in January 2009. Four days later, his family was called to appear at the Intelligence Office in the city of Orumiyeh to claim his body.

(17) Abdulreza Rajabi, a member MEK , was arrested by authorities in 2001 and sentenced to life in prison. On 28 October 2008, Rajabi was transferred from Evin Prison to Gohardasht Prison. He died the same night.”

“In addition to political prisoners, there were several other cases of prisoner deaths among ordinary non-political prisoners: Mohammad Rajabi Sani was arrested on 30 September 2004 following a street fight, and transferred to Ghezel Hessar Prison. Authorities transferred him to Rajaee Hospital in the city of Karaj a few days later, saying he had lost brain function in prison. Sani, who was prescribed heavy medication for psychological disorders he developed while serving in the Iran-Iraq War, was denied his medication and refused access to a doctor. Believing that Sani was faking his illness, prison personnel allegedly attacked and beat him and transferred him to a hospital only after he slipped into a coma … Several other suspicious deaths of ordinary non-political prisoners have also been publicly reported. The International Campaign for Human Rights in Iran continues its efforts to gain more information about these cases, including nine deaths among female inmates between November 2005 and June 2009 inside Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, where the women either died under suspicious circumstances or had allegedly been murdered in prison. Fereshteh Famil, Hanieh Hadian, Arezoo Abdi, Fereshteh Rajabzadeh, Mina Maleki, Katrin Safa, Shirin Zoghi, Hedieh Moayedi, and Mahnaz Akbari are some of these victims “.
