On June 6, over 20 prisoners in Ghezel Hessar Prison of Karaj were transferred to solitary confinement in preparation for their execution. The criminal special guards of the prison savagely battered and injured some of these prisoners who resisted and forcibly transferred them to the solitary confinement. The prisoners were not even given time to bid farewell to their cellmates.
Additionally, on the previous day, seven prisoners condemned to death were transferred to solitary confinement in Adel-Abad Prison of Shiraz.
The fact that the Iranian regime resorts to this criminal and utterly cruel trend betrays regime’s fear of the escalating protests in cities nationwide that have become a nightmare for the regime.
