Imprisoned Former MP Mir Taher Mousavi Under Pressure To Give On-Camera False Confession

Because of the poor health condition of imprisoned former Parliament member Mir Taher Mousavi, the Tehran Prosecutor has requested the medical examiner to visit Mir Taher Mousavi at Evin prison. But the agents at Ward 209 refused to allow the visiting doctor to see this political prisoner.

According to Kalameh, Mir Taher Mousavi suffered from pre-existing heart condition prior to his arrest by the Intelligence Ministry. The severe pressures and interrogations he suffers in Ward 209 have exacerbated his heart condition.

Due to worsening of Mir Taher Mousavi’s health, the Assistant District Attorney had requested the Medical Examiner to send a physician to Evin to examine him. On Tuesday, December 11, a physician from the Medical Examiner’s office went to Evin, but, despite the order from the Prosecutor’s office, the interrogators at Ward 209 denied the physician access to this political prisoner.

According to this report, Mir Taher Mousavi is under severe pressure to give a mock televised interview. To achieve this, the interrogators deny him needed medical treatment.

Kalameh had reported previously that the interrogators have given him two options: A Commander Madhi-style interview that was broadcast on Zarghami’s Sima TV (Seda Va Sima, the Iranian national broadcast system), or; a confession in a show trial same as those we witnessed in the show trials of 2009.

Confessions to crimes not committed; false confessions such as a number of prisoners were forced to give, after long periods of solitary confinements under physical and psychological pressure.
