Iran: Call to save life of political prisoner Ali Moezzi

NCRI - Recently, the henchmen of the anti-human regime of the mullahs suddenly transferred political prisoner Mr. Ali Moezzi, who has just a few months of his sentence remaining and about to be released, from the Gohardasht Prison in Karaj to the solitary cells of ward 209 of the infamous Evin Prison and placed him under heinous pressures. The regime’s intelligence henchmen have told Mr. Moezzi on numerous occasions that they will ultimately “torment you to death and finish you off” in prison and that he would not leave the prison alive.
