NCRI - Following the escape of 6 prisoners from Zabol Prison Southeastern Iran, the Prosecutor of Zabol issued an order to arrest their families. The father, mother, and sister of one of the prisoners called Siahook were arrested, tortured and interrogated in order to reveal the whereabouts of their son who was accused of committing a crime at the age of 16.

According to the sources, this prisoner has never accepted the allegations despite severe tortures.

On the same issue, the prison guards have also chained one of the prisoners called Hashem Sanjouri to one of the columns of this custodial under the charge of helping Siahook to escape. This measure is one of the most common brutal tortures which are being implemented in Zabol Prison.

As a few prisoners escaped from Zabol Prison last week, all wards of this prison have been closed and the prisoners are prohibited from taking walks.
