Political prisoner Javed Hosseini-Nezhad is beaten and threatened to be murdered in Mashhad Prison.
The human rights center of “No to Prison-No to Execution” warns that the life of political prisoner Javad Hosseini-Nezhad is in danger.
According to reports from reliable sources, on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, two hired prisoners, went to the cell of political prisoner Javad Hosseini-Nezhad in Vakilabad Prison in Mashhad and brutally beat him so that the political prisoner suffered severe eye injuries and received 2 or 3 stitches. The prisoners threatened Javad Hosseini-Nezhad with murder.
The hired inmates who did this told Javad Hosseini-Nezhad, “Shedding your blood is halal and you should be killed.”
Despite the prisoner’s complaint against the assailants, so far no action has been taken by the head of the prison to investigate the incident and hold the perpetrators accountable.
The life of political prisoner Javad Hosseini-Nezhad is in danger, and it is possible that at any moment he would be murdered by the agents hired by the head of the prison.
In another event, the prisoner’s father recently underwent head surgery. He is seeking to visit his son, but so far prison agents have not allowed Javad Hosseini-Nezhad to visit his father. It should be noted that two members of Javad Hosseini-Nezhad’s family, his mother and sister, died in May and September of this year, but the warden refused to give Javad a furlough to attend their funerals.
Javad Hosseini-Nezhad a November 2019 protester was arrested for the second time on July 11, 2020, and was held in solitary confinement for a month. He was eventually sentenced to five years in prison in a sham trial.
It is worth noting that cases of beatings and murders of political prisoners have increased in recent days and weeks, and the lives of political prisoners are critically endangered. Prison agents not only pay no attention to the complaints of political prisoners, but also they are directly involved in their killing.
In the latest case, Amir Hossein Hatami was beaten to death by prison agents in the Greater Tehran Prison.
Earlier, Shahin Nasseri, a witness to the torture of Navid Afkari, was killed suspiciously in solitary confinement in the Greater Tehran Prison.
Also earlier, Alireza Shir-Mohammadali was murdered by agents hired by the head of The Greater Tehran Prison.
Prison agents deliberately remove political prisoners from the wards of political prisoners under various pretexts and place them in the wards of prisoners for violent and dangerous crimes to either put them under more pressures and harassment or to kill them.
The human rights center of “No to Prison-No to Execution” warns about the life of political prisoner, Javad Hossein-Nezhad. It holds the warden and other personnel of Mashhad prison accountable in case anything happens to this political prisoner.
