Tehran, Iran, Jul. 06 – Guards in Tehran’s notorious Evin Prison, where political prisoners are held, carried out a raid on cells in Ward 350 on Tuesday, injuring prisoners and confiscating personal belongings and written materials.

The raid was carried out at 6 a.m., when prison guards led by an officer called Abbasi charged into the ward.

Some political prisoners were injured in the raid, including Mohammad Moussavi and Mostafa Jo’kar. The authorities wanted to transfer both of them to Rajai-Shahr Prison in Karaj, west of Tehran, but as a result of resistance from other political prisoners they have not yet been transferred.

Evin Prison was built by the Shah’s regime as a modern security prison to house political dissidents, but it became the Islamic Republic’s most dreaded gulag and the site of numerous political executions.
