In a heinous crime on April 5, 2017, a seriously ill prisoner was hanged in Esfahan prison. Houshang Servati was executed while two days earlier, after his transfer to solitary confinement, had suffered a heart attack. He had five children.
The regime’s henchmen keep persecuting and torturing prisoners to the last moments and their transfer to solitary confinement for the implementation of death sentence is accompanied by beating and insults.
On April 4, another ill prisoner was executed after four years detention in Tabriz prison. Before his arrest, he was exempt from military service because of mental illness.
In another development, on the morning of April 6, Gohardasht prison guards raided halls 30 and 35 of Ward 10 of the prison, insulted and humiliated prisoners and destructed their belongings, and took away their medications.
