NCRI - Wardens in Iran’s notorious Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison in Karaj, north-west of Tehran, on Monday, May 30, raided a prison ward housing ordinary prisoners, harassing prisoners and damaging their belongings, according to reports from inside the prison.

Armed guards raided Ward 4 under the pretext of carrying out an inspection.

The reports indicate that the prisoners’ refrigerators were severely damaged. The guards were unable to discover any unusual activities in their inspection.

In the Iranian regime’s prisons, inspections are always an excuse for prison authorities to harass, intimidate and beat both political and ordinary prisoners.

On May 14, black-clad prison guards raided a Kurdish political prisoners' ward in Gohardasht, beating inmates and pillaging through their personal property.

Around 100 suppressive guards in full riot gear and wielding batons raided the ward which houses political prisoners of Kurdish descent.

During the raid, which lasted more than two hours, prisoners' personal items were searched and many items destroyed. Pillows were torn apart with blades.
