After leaked videos, Iran opens cases against prison guards
Iran’s judiciary says that prosecutors have opened criminal cases against six guards at the country’s notorious Evin prison, after footage showing the widespread abuse of detainees at the facility leaked out last week

イラン prosecutors opened criminal cases against six guards at the country’s notorious Evin prison, the judiciary reported on Tuesday, after footage showing the widespread abuse of detainees at the facility leaked out last week.

The judiciary’s three-day investigation into mistreatment and grim conditions at テヘラン s Evin prison had landed “some” prison guards in detention, said judiciary spokesman Zabihollah Khodaeian. Authorities also summoned two guards and punished others, Khodaeian said, without elaborating on the penalties or identifying the suspects.

The revelation comes days after The Associated Press published parts of the videos and a report about the abuse at the facility in northern Tehran, イランが国際交渉で交渉の切り札として使用する政治犯や西側と関係のある囚人を収容することで長い間知られている. オンラインアカウント, purportedly by a self-described hacker group, 事件の共有映像, それが押収した他の監視ビデオの一部と同様に.

“The scenes shown in the published films were against the law and it is not justifiable under any circumstances,” said Khodaeian, noting that the leaked clips had been selected and edited from different scenes over the course of years.

Iran’s judiciary ordered an investigation into the abuse last week after the head of the country’s prison system acknowledged the videos were real, expressing contrition and saying he took responsibility for the “unacceptable behaviors.”
