INU - Human rights organisations have long been commenting on prison conditions in Iran. There are a huge number of political prisoners in the country and the conditions they are faced with are appalling.
At the beginning of the year, Amnesty International reported on Iran’s “year of shame” in which more than 7,000 people were arrested during the 2018 crackdown on dissent. It highlighted that the Iranian regime “carried out a shameless campaign of repression” last year in which protests were crushed and mass arrests were made.
