According to the reports recivied from inside Iran's Gohardasht Prison, west of Tehran despite freezing cold weather, the prison authorities have refrained from providing heaters to prisoners in Gohardasht Prison, located in Karaj, west of Tehran. The hot water has cut off and all heating elements have been turned off leaving the prisoners in an intolerable situation. The purpose behind this inhumane action, according to prisoners and their families, is to exert more pressures on them.
Amirian, the prison director who is known for his brutal treatment of the prisoners responded to the prisoners' complain by saying "we don't have any money to spend on you, this is not a hotel here, you are prisoners not hotel guests."
