NCRI – According to reports, the political prisoner and workers’ rights advocate “Behnam Ebrahim Zadeh” has been summoned and threatened by “Yousef Mardi” head of Information & Security in Gohardasht Prison on the morning of Wednesday September 21.

According to the report, the reason Ebrahim Zadeh was summoned was his revealing the news on beating of a security prisoner named “Mahmood Naji” and his forced transfer to the court as well as reporting on the pressures put on political, security and ordinary prisoners.

Yousef Mardi threatened Ebrahim Zadeh of manipulating his case and preventing his furlough as well as his medical treatment.
