Interrogators Target the Sacred Union

In a letter addressed to Sadeq Larijani, Head of the Iranian Judiciary, political prisoner Abolfazl Ghadyani asks (LINK: ) that the Intelligence Ministry stop interrogators’ “harassment and the corruption” of the families of political prisoners.

The letter, published December 11 on Kaleme website, describes the actions of imprisoned journalist Alireza Rajaee’s interrogator: “Recently he has taken brazenness and meanness to a new level by telling Dr. Rajaee’s wife, ‘I will exile him to Borazjan or Rajaee Shahr Prison,’ and has outrageously asked her to divorce her husband.”

Ghadyani’s letter continues, “As a political prisoner of the former regime, I announce that such treatment which you support does the deposed Shah’s SAVAK proud despite all its corruptions and tortures. In that regime, despite all its corruptions and oppressions, prisoners’ families were treated with respect and no problems were created for the spouses or children of political prisoners.”
