Following the transfer of the last group of political prisoner from Section 350 of the notorious Evin Prison in Tehran, authorities have closed down this section, being one of the oldest sections used to detain political prisoners in recent years.
Following the vicious raid staged by authorities back in April where dozens of political prisoners were brutally beaten, Section 350 of Evin Prison had become a center of rebellion and riots for political prisoners against the mullahs’ regime.
The inhumane regime resorted to executing PMOI hero Gholamreza Khosravi in order to silence this center of rebellions. Gholamreza Khosravi was one of the main organizers of protests against the mullahs’ regime in Section 350.
