In a shocking crime in Ardebil Prison, northwest Iran, authorities chained an inmate by the name of Abbas Alipour to a light pole in the prison courtyard and left him in the winter cold. This hideous torture method continued for many days and nights, resulting in the prisoner’s death on February 15th.

This vicious practice has turned into a trending method in the regime’s prisons. Prior to this Mohammad Saber Malek Reisis from Iran’s Baluch minority, an exiled political prisoner, was chained in this prison’s courtyard for 14 hours.

Political prisoner Arzhang Davoudi on February wrote a letter in this regard.

“In Zabol Prison (southeast Iran)… after the prisoner was beaten and insulted in a humiliating manner… they shaved his head, and chained his arms and legs to two columns, leaving him in the sight of all prisoners, prison guards, authorities and other personnel. They kept him in those conditions for a few days and the prisoner lost conscious during this periods from the pains he suffered due to muscle cramps.”

The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights organizations, especially the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, the Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Iran and the Special Rapporteur on Torture to take urgent action against torture in Iran and establishing a fact-finding mission to investigate the deteriorating conditions of prisons and prisoners across Iran.
