More suppression at Iran’s notorious prison

Gohardasht Prison

NCRI – The Iranian regime has stepped up suppression of prisoners in the notorious Gohardasht Prison in Karaj, west of the Iranian capital.

In the scorching summer heat, prison wardens have deliberately shut the door leading to the prison yard in the political prisoners’ section, preventing the circulation of oxygen even as the political prisoners observe a fast during the holy month of Ramadan.

The mullahs’ infamous henchmen in the prison, including the likes of Amirian, Baqeri and Zolfali last Thursday attacked the ordinary prisoners’ section. Prisoners in Ward 3 were brutally beaten with clubs as they took their turn in the prison courtyard.

The brutal attack on prisoners, as they were fasting, was meant to spread fear among inmates to prevent any form of dissent.

Last month the Iranian regime installed new communication-jamming devices in Hall 12 of Ward 4 of Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison to increase torture and pressure on the political prisoners.

The jamming devices are said to be cancerous and have placed the health of the prisoners at dire risk. The prisoners are constantly experiencing symptoms of dryness of mucus, muscle pains, severe headaches, blurry vision, vomiting and numbness.
