According to the Human Rights Activists News Agency, on October 11, 2012, Kurdish political prisoners Jahangir (Houshang) Badouzadeh, Ahmad Tamouei, Yousef Kaleh Memi, Ali Ahmad solaeiman and Mostafa Ali Ahmad, incarcerated in Oromieh prison, were transferred to the Intelligence Ministry’s detention in Oromieh.
These political prisoners have been denied contact with their families or their lawyers for the last two months, and were threatened, humiliated and ill-treated in the Intelligence Ministry’s detention center.
According to the latest reports, these prisoners have been accused by the Intelligence Ministry’s interrogators of contact with foreign media, publication of political prisoners news through contact with human rights agencies, and contact with the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Iran.
Jahangir (Houshang) Badouzadeh and Yousef Kaleh Memi have been transferred back to Uromieh prison after two months in the Intelligence Ministry’s solitary confinement detention. Ahmad Tamouei has been transferred to Rejaei Shahr prison in Karaj.
There is no information as to where the other two prisoners, named Ali Ahmad Solaeiman and Mostafa Ali Ahmad, have been transferred to, and worries about the fate of these two prisoners still remain.
The agents transporting Ahmad Tamouei from Oromieh to Karaj, assaulted and beat him along the way, before handing him over to Rejaei Shahr prison.
Prisoner (Ahmad Tamouei) was summoned to court today to be tried on the above mentioned charges.
