On October 26, 2012, the ward 2 prisoners of Bandar Abbas central prison took actions in controlling the ward by themselves on protest to the raiding and brutal torture, intolerable hygienic conditions, drastic reduction of food rations and medieval prison conditions in the Mullahs prisons. Upon this action all the guards chose to release the ward and escape. The ward 2 was under control by the prisoners until 31 of October.
From 26th of October the ward guards invaded several times towards the prisoners using tear gas but their attacks were defeated each time due to the prisoners’ resistance.
On Oct. 31 the ward guards accompanied by masses of special guards and extensive use of tear gas attacked the ward 2 that led to the conflict for 3 hours long. Finally the prisoners agreed to surrender the ward control to the jail officials by the prison chief promises.
But the jail intelligence did not keep it promises and they removed 25 prisoners out of the ward 2 and transferred them to the special solitary confinement cells called the “dog house”.
In solitary confinements of Mullah Ali Khamenei, they were placed under brutal tortures by the guards, resulting in broken arms, legs, body parts injured and severe bruising on their body members.
One of the prisoners whose legs were broken due to such brutal tortures was Yasser Shouri.
One of the regime’s henchmen that torture the defenseless prisoners in special cells, the dog houses, is “Keshtkar”, who is the chief of the intelligence of Bandar Abbas central prison. Another person called Haji Mahmoodi is the chief of the inspection of Bandar Abbas jail. These two torturers have committed against humanity crimes through inhuman and brutal deeds.
Mulla Ali Khamenei determines the torture policy and bloody suppression of Iranian people as well as hanging the political prisoners and group executions and implements this inhuman policy through the Mullah’s network that have control over the Judiciary, The Ministry of Intelligence and other suppressive institutions
“Human Rights and Democracy Advocates in Iran” condemns the physical and psychological tortures, reduction of food rations and maintaining inhuman conditions against the defenseless prisoners by the regime in Iran. We urge the UN Secretary General, High Commissioner for Human Rights, and UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights to refer Ali Khamenei’s case to the international courts for trial to end the against humanity deeds of Iranian regime.
