In the past two days, regime’s leaders have attempted to cover up their anti-human crime in Evin Prison in fear of its disclosure. Head henchman Pourmohammadi, the Justice Minister in Rouhani’s cabinet who is one of the authorities responsible for the massacre of 30,000 political prisoners in 1988, stated on Sunday: “The published reports were incorrect. It was just a routine inspection of the wards… a couple of prisoners were just lightly bruised and were treated without any need for hospitalization.” Regarding prevention of prisoners’ visits he offered the following excuse: “The families of prisoners have requested immediate visits, but nothing has happened to justify their requests for immediate visits.”
Meanwhile, the prisoners in Ward 350 rejected the fabrications by the criminal head of Prisons Organization Esmaeili who had claimed that a number of families had met with their children. They announced that no visits were held on Sunday between the families and the prisoners of Ward 350 of Evin Prison.
