Hunger Striking Dr. Mehdi Khazali, From Evin Cell Number 104: The Ten Rules That Reign In Evin

Protesting his illegal arrest and detention, Dr. Mehdi Khazali continues to be on hunger strike. On Thursday March 14, his son posted a note on his Facebook page saying that his father has been transferred back to solitary confinement and is banned from visits and phone calls.

On January 29, 2013 Mehdi Khazali, thinking about the ten rules that reign in Evin prison, wrote them down. These rules, which the political prisoners and their families have felt with their skin and bones, were posted on day 77 of Dr. Khazali’s hunger strike by his son Mohamad Saleh on his Facebook.

“Evin’s Laws

1- The rule of law is prohibited from entering Evin.

2- Demanding justice is a crime.

3- Speaking of the rule of law at Evin is making a fool of oneself.

4- Requesting a lawyer exacerbates limitations placed on a prisoner.

5- You are blindfolded to stop you from seeing anything.

6- No means of communications with the outside world and a ban on news, so you don’t know what is happening.

7- Threatening of families has become a very effective weapon.

8- Solitary confinement for added psychological stress and pressure.

9- Pen and paper are considered more dangerous than drugs.

10- Degrading humanity.
