Iran, April 22, 2018 – Sources inside Iran say the around 60 detainees from the clashes with the security forces in Golestan Street, in the Iranian capital Tehran, have been held in the notorious solitary in the Greater Tehran Prison. The sources citing some of the detainees who have been able to speak with their families say that the prison solitary lacks the very basic necessities, including drinking water and hot water for bathing and that the cells are washed with filth and are totally unsanitary.
The detainees have developed skin and kidney diseases due to the horrible inhumane condition of the cells imposed on them by the regime. They are barred from having visitors and no lawyers are assigned to them.
As a means of torturing the prisoners, high-intensity projection lamps are left on 24/7 depriving them of sleep and rest. This condition has caused psychological pressure on the prisoners.
In a rare chance of calling a family member, one of the detainees told his family that they were forced to take 13 pills every day, and they don't know what kind of pills are those and what is the composition of these pills. The detainee added that after a strong protest and firm resistance, they finally stopped giving them those pills.
