Prison guards assaulted political prisoners in Ahvaz

The government's special forces attacked the ward where political prisoners are held in "Sheiban" prison in the central city of Ahwaz, Khuzestan province.

Human rights organization "Karun" reported on this.

According to reports, the 5th unit, where political prisoners are held, was searched, the prisoners were beaten, and their personal belongings destroyed.

Human rights defenders said that the attack was carried out on the instructions of the head of the prison, Mohammad Niyazi.

It should be noted that the "Sheiban" prison, located 12 kilometers from Ahvaz city, has a capacity of 3,500 people, but 5,000 prisoners are kept there.

Because of its harsh conditions and the deplorable living conditions of its inmates, this prison is regarded as one of Iran's most dangerous.
