London, Jun. 01 – The following are extracts of reports gathered from other Iranian news sources:


Guards murder young man in Shahrud Detention Center

While State Security Forces have announced that the death of a 25-year-old man in the Detention Center of Station 11 in Shahrud was the result of suicide, in a letter addressed to Semnan’s State Security Forces Commander, his family have denied this and have announced that Abas Sediqi died as a result of beating.

“It is very shocking that a 25-year-old man has been murdered in a detention center without his family being notified and without committing a crime”, his family wrote in the letter.

“After examining the body, the ripped up clothes and the blood running from his nose and mouth, it became completely obvious that he passed away as a result of constant strikes and beatings in the detention center”, they wrote in another part of the letter.

According to eye-witnesses and the Sediqi family, Abas, had gone to a store on Saduqi street to run some errands for his work. When he sees an agent from Shahrud’s Municipality confiscating the goods of a street peddler, he gets angry and tries to intervene and as a result is severely beaten by the agents and taken to station 11 in a bad condition.

Abas Sediqi was the guardian of his mother and five sisters and brothers after his father passed away 8 months ago. (Ayandeh Website – May 28, 2009)
