NCRI – In the heat of the summer, water has been cut off over the past days in Varamin's Qarchak Prison for Women, aggravating the already inhuman and intolerable conditions in this notorious jail, also known as Kahrizak II.
Qarchak Prison (in Varamin near Tehran) is also referred to as Qarchak Death Camp and was used by the Iranian regime as a place to brutally torture and rape those arrested during the 2009 anti-regime popular protests. The death of at least four young protesters under torture in Qarchak turned into a scandal for the Iranian regime.
Since Thursday, June 18, prison officials have been continuously making threats from loudspeakers to flog women who eat or drink during fasting hours.
