Using new cameras and phone interruption in Evin prison
Ayatollah Boroujerdi, arrested over a year ago, though a prominent cleric himself and son of the late-famous Ayatollah Boroujerdi, is a strong, vocal opponent of the regime. He has been badly abused in prison and refused medical treatment in the hope of his dying from his diabetes and other serious illnesses.
This site, operated by his followers, tries to provide information about the abuses and the sad plight he and others suffer under the brutal regime.
Tuesday Feb 2, 2010 some new cameras have been put into operation in and out of different sections of Evin prison. According to the reports received, the prison authorities these cameras have been used even in the bathrooms and WC of the Special Court for clergy! This hideous action led to discontent and severe protest of the prisoners.
The prison authorities have presented no reason for their actions, but because of the intensification of public protests, Velayat-e-Faqih regime is scared of the people implementing a massive attack on the prisons to release their children and relatives, so they have intensified security systems by expanding use of cameras.
Also phone communication in Evin prison especially in the clergy section has completely been stopped since Feb 3, in order to prevent from spreading news by prisoners.
