Pastor Farshid Fathi Was Beaten in Evin Prison

A group of prisoners of conscience and political prisoners explained in a letter how security authorities beat them ruthlessly last Thursday. Most prisoners in ward 350 of Evin prison have signed the letter, reports Mohabat News.

According to reports published recently, a number of Revolutionary Guards raided ward 350 in Evin prison on Thursday April 17. They beat tens of prisoners in the ward. Ward 350 mostly holds political prisoners. More than 30 prisoners were injured in the incident. A few of them had to be transferred to a hospital outside prison due to bleeding and broken bones. Also, 32 of them were taken to solitary confinement after being beaten.

In the meantime, 74 prisoners of conscience and political prisoners who witnessed the incident have confirmed it and said they are willing to give this testimony in court.

In their letter to Tehran's Attorney General, these witness mentioned names of a few Christian prisoners, namely Farshid Fathi, Ebrahim Firouzi, Rasoul Abdollahi, and Alireza Seyyedian.

Farshid Fathi's cell-mates testified that he was beaten, bruised, his left toe swollen and could not move his joints in the areas of the beatings.

Also, "authorities ordered physicians in prison not to treat the prisoners injured in this raid, until physicians trusted by the intelligence service arrived."

Following the spread of news about the incident, and in response to international concerns, Iranian authorities have simply denied all reports.

The Head of Iran's Prisons Organization, Gholam-Hossein Esmaili denied all the reports, while the Director of Tehran's Prisons, Sohrab Soleimani, said, "There were not beatings nor was there any conflict between prisoners and guards".

This is while Ali Motahari, a member of Iran's Parliament (Majles), asked that families of the allegedly beaten prisoners be given permission to visit them, so that the truth about these reports would be revealed.
