NCRI – On Friday, November 27, Mr. Mohammad Hamadi, a 35-year-old political prisoner and father of a child, suspiciously lost his life in prison in Ahwaz after languishing seven years in prison. This Arab Ahwazi compatriot was in complete health. According to eye witnesses he was already dead when transferred to Molla Sani Infirmary near Ahwaz that is controlled by the revolutionary guards. The Iranian regime announced that this political prisoner had died of a brain stroke.
Mr. Mohammad Hamadi who was an electrician was arrested in 2008 by elements of regime’s intelligence and sent to regime’s torture chambers. He was condemned to 10 years in prison for “acting against the security of the country”. He spent most of his prison term in Sepidar Prison of Ahwaz and was transferred in the recent months to Shayban Prison in this city.
Secret killing of the political prisoners is a known method used by the Iranian regime, especially in the recent years. Messrs. Valiollah Fayz Mahdavi, Amir Hossein Heshmat Saran, Mansour Radpour and Afshin Assanlou are among such prisoners. In the most recent case, the resistive political prisoner Mr. Shahrokh Zamani mysteriously lost his life in Gohardasht (Rajai Shahr) Prison on September 13.
The Iranian Resistance calls on all international human rights agencies to condemn the inhuman conditions in Iranian regime’s prisons and the criminal treatment of prisoners by prison henchmen. It urges the formation of an international commission to investigate the suspicious deaths of the political prisoners in Iran, including Mr. Mohammad Hamadi.
