Despite the Iranian regime’s struggle to bury the history of the 1988 massacre of political prisoners and even not possible to minimize this event which is one of the worst human rights violation cases after World War Two but its henchmen in the regime’s prison are warning the political prisoners that they would repeat such an action if they support the protests, write a letter to the outside world or issue statements about the regime’s actions in the prison and the country.
The interesting part is that with the start of the government of Ebrahim Raisi, who is one of the main actors in the 1988 massacre, there is a clear sign of the supreme leader’s decision to increase the pressure in the country like their latest decision in the parliament to restrict and country’s internet cut the country from the outside world under the pretext of a plan named ‘protection of social media users.
But this is just the beginning and from now on the world will face more violations by this regime in any possible field.
Reports from Qarchak prison in Varamin indicate that four women political prisoners in support of the Iranian opposition were threatened and re-interrogated on 4 August. Political prisoners Zahra Safaei, Forough Taghipour, Parasto Moeini, and Marzieh Farsi were each interrogated and threatened separately on Monday.
These threats and interrogation were implemented after these political prisoners have issued a statement about the regime’s presidential election and condemned the presidency of the ‘Tehran’s Butcher’ Ebrahim Raisi, who is one of the main perpetrators of the 1988 massacre.
One of these threatened women is the 20-year-old Parsto Moeini. The interrogator warned her that the “conditions of 1988 may be repeated.”
“Even if we do not execute you, we will do something that you beg to be executed,” he said in another part of his threat.
Reports indicate that in addition to interrogation and threats, special restrictions have been imposed on these women prisoners by order of the head of the prison. Other women are prevented from entering the rooms of these 4 women prisoners. These women are prevented from going to other parts of the prison, such as the library and the prayer hall.
The lives of these women political prisoners are in danger in Qarchak prison, and before that, agents of the regime in this prison by the direct order of the head of this prison tried to kill them by attacking them and pouring boiling water over them.
Zahra Safaei and her daughter Parasto Moeini, along with Forough Taghipour (25) and her mother Nasim Jabbari (58), were arrested by security forces in Tehran on February 24, 2020, and transferred to the Ministry of Intelligence Detention Center, Ward 209 of Evin Prison.
Zahra Safaei, Parasto Moeini, and Forough Taghipour were deported from Evin Prison to Qarchak Prison in Varamin in late April 2020.
Parasto Moeini was infected with the coronavirus in Qarchak Prison in Varamin on July 10, 2020, but was transferred from ward 5 of Qarchak prison in Varamin to a room on the upper floor of the prison’s medical building without medical treatment.
