Prisoner tortured in the Concentration Camp type Prison of Ahvaz

Published by on February 2, 2016

Tortur-a-prisoner-held-in-Prison-AhvazMajed Albughobaish, a prisoner held in Sheiban Concentration Camp type Prison of Ahvaz was attacked and tortured on Monday, January 25, by “Mohammadi”, the prison warden. Being a Sunni and praying in the Sunni form was the reason he was attacked. This prisoner was injured after this beating.

His right hand of this prisoner had already been broken under torture while in detention in the Ahvaz Intelligence Detention Centre.

Albughobaish was born in 1979 and prior to this he was arrested and sentenced to 8 years behind bars and paying 1 billion Rial in fine (around $28,500) on charges of “getting involved in skirmishes with the security forces”, “clashing with Intelligence Department forces” and “propaganda against the Islamic republic” in the city of Khoramshahr, southwest Iran.

Prisoners in the same dossier with Albughabish are Omid Baghlani, born in 1980, and Mohammad Mojjaddam, born in 1983.

These three prisoners had prior to this been held in Karoon Prison of Ahvaz and recently around 220 political, civil and Arab Sunnis were relocated to Sheiban Prison.

Abolish death penalty in Iran

Please Sign our Petition

Dear Secretary General of United Nations,

The number of executions is rising in Iran, journalists are being detained for doing their job and activists face cruel and degrading punishments, long prison terms and even execution. According to the most recent reports by Amnesty International and the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, “Iran’s judiciary continues to sentence child offenders to death, and carry out their execution by hanging”. Also, on August 9th, 2016 the son of late Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri, Khomeini’s designated successor in 1988, published a shocking audio tape of his father’s meeting with the “Death Commission” which summarily and extra-judicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran. The massacre was carried out on the basis of a fatwa by the regime’s then-Supreme Leader Khomeini.

We, the undersigned, hereby urge you to take up this issue and raise it in the General Assembly in order to;

1. Put pressure on Iran to immediately halt the executions and abolish death penalty in Iran.
2. Call on all Western governments to make any improvement in economic relations with Iran contingent on its human rights record.
3. Demand in its resolution on human rights violations in Iran, to bring the perpetrators of 1988 massacre (one of the worst atrocities the post-war world has ever seen – Geoffrey Robertson-QC) to justice before an international tribunal.

Executions must stop.
