Brussels August 15, 2017. Following the recent savage attack to political prisoners by Iranian regime, Mr Gérard Deprez ,MEP and Chair of the Friends of a Free Iran committee in the European Parliament, issued this statement:

We are very much concerned about the health and safety of political prisoners in solitary confinement of ward 4 in Gohardasht Prison of Karaj, west of Tehran. They have been on hunger strike to protest the regime’s ruthless attack on the prisoners on 30 July. They were insulted and beaten by prison guards, and forcefully transferred to hall 10 of this ward.

Prison authorities have deprived these political prisoners of minimum hygiene products and decent clothing. They are have been banned from any family visits and been placed under pressures to end their hunger strikes.

Their names are: Abolqassem Fouladvand, Hassan Sadeghi, Saeed Masouri, Reza Akbari Monfared, Jafar Eqdami, Amir Qaziyan, Khaled Heradani, Zaniyar Moradi, Loqman Moradi , Mohammad Banazadeh Amir Khizi, Pirouz Mansouri, Majid Assadi and Payam Shakiba.

Amnesty International recently published a comprehensive report on human rights violations under so called “moderate” Rouhani.

We urge the President of the European Parliament, the EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the UN Special Rapporteur on Iran to publicly condemn the continuous mistreatment of political prisoners in Iran and call for their release.

Gérard Deprez MEP
Chair, Friends of a Free Iran, European Parliament
