About Amir Entezam and Boroujerdi

An appeal to the international authorities to save two prisoners from the dangerous conditions they live in
We are highlighting the imminent danger threatening the fate of two political prisoners in Iran and we are appealing to you not to let the Islamic Republic of Iran succeed in consigning the case of these two political prisoners, one of whom undergoes regular torture, to oblivion.
Abbas Amir Entezam is the longest serving political prisoner in Iran, who was sentenced to life imprisonment about thirty years ago and currently is serving a suspended leave due to his many physical and psychiatric injuries he has suffered and had to undergo an operation recently. We hope with the support of the international community his sentience be quashed and he can once again declare his political position freely.

A shocking report about the tortures on Ayatollah Boroujerdi

According to the report received by one of the guards of Evin prison; Mr. Boroujerdi has been detained in solitary confinement under the control of Information ward since April 22, 2010 up to April 27, 2010 and the special officials diffused chemical and microbial gases with various colors and smells in the space of his cell during this period! As this matter resulted in the gravity of his physical condition and they became compelled to return him to the general ward.
It is necessary to say that such these inhumane and savage actions are nothing new and some of dissident prisoners had been afflicted by various brain diseases and paralysis due to such these awful tortures during last years too.
