Gholam Hossein Arshi’s Narration of His Torture in Prison

Gholam Hossein Arshi’s letter to the Tehran Prosecutor from Evin Prison



...I asked them to stop cursing me and beating me for God’s sake and asked them not to force me into making false confessions. I told them that I take responsibility for my own deeds and I never escaped even though my photo had been published.

The interrogators talked to me in an offensive manner and told me that “we would have found you even if you were in your mother’s womb and we are the ones who decide for you here, not God.”

They handcuffed me to the chair and started beating me with cable and wire to the extent that the injuries from the beatings were evident on my arms and legs for months and those injuries can be confirmed by my cellmates.

In order to force me to confess to something I had never done, setting fire on the police cars, they spread my legs while my hands were tied, and hit me in my testicles, inflicting severe pressures on them. I was screaming out of pain and they responded to my cries for help by using degrading words to insult my honor. more...
