Iran: Pressure continues on political prisoner Ali Moezi

NCRI – The authorities in Tehran’s notorious Evin prison continue to pressure and threaten political prisoner Ali Moezi.

Critically ill Ali Moezi, 63, a former prisoner of the 80’s, arrested in 2008 for visiting his two daughters in Camp Ashraf and spent 2 years in prison.

Mr Moezi was arrested once again in June 2011 for attending the funeral of a political prisoner supporter of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI/MEK) who had died in prison due to being denied access to medical care.

The authorities have told Ali Moezi that they intend to bring new bogus charges against him to prevent his release after the end of his sentence period.

On numerous occasions, agents of Ministry of Intelligence and Security (MOIS) have told Mr. Moezi: “We will torture you to death in prison and you should not get out of prison alive.”

Mr. Moezi has refused to attend the regime’s courts that he considers unjust and all the past sentences have been issued without him being present.

Iranian Resistance repeatedly has called on human right organizations, particularly the UN High Commissioner for Human Right to take urgent measures to save Mr. Moezi.
