Prisoner tortured in the Concentration Camp type Prison of AhvazPublished by International Liberty on February 2, 2016
Majed 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.
