NCRI- Iranians in Sweden held a protest condemning the recent savage raid on political prisoners in Ward 350 of Tehran's Evin prison.

Protester supported the call by Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the Iranian Resistance for an independent international probe by the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and Dr. Ahmed Shaheed, Special Rapporteur on Iran, into the barbaric raid at Evin Prison.

Ward 350 is the ward of political prisoners in Evin Prison, including those who are imprisoned on the charges of affiliation with the People's Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK). The Amnesty International condemned the raid in a call for Urgent Action on April 17.

The assailants were in particularly focused on prisoners who are charged with being affiliated to the PMOI/MEK and beat them up more severely, and wounded a number of them.

The henchmen in Evin transferred a number of political prisoners to solitary cells despite their injuries and their need for medical treatment and there is no news on their conditions.
