According to “No to Prison – No to Execution”, Soheil Arabi, a political prisoner, was suddenly transferred from Greater Tehran Prison to Detention Center 1A on Tuesday, April 17, 2020, by interrogators and torturers.
Under the pretext of being transferred to the hospital, intelligence agents transferred Soheil Arabi to the detention center while he was on the twelfth day of his hunger strike. Mr. Arabi has been told that he will be interrogated for 21 days.
Since April 3, the political prisoner resumed his hunger strike in protest of violation of his rights, severe oppression and the authorities’ failure to deliver on their promise.
After severe beatings, Mr. Arabi is suffering an illness and needs surgery. However, his medical and surgical care has been denied despite numerous promises.
