Muslim Cleric Beaten and Insulted by Guards

March 29, 2010

According to reports, on the morning of March 27, 2010, *Seyyed Hossein Kazemeyni Boroujerdi, who is detained in the clerics ward of Evin prison, was beaten and insulted by guards. He was also threatened with transfer to solitary confinement. The prison officials have offered no explanation, but it seems the assault was due to earlier unsuccessful attempts to put pressure on Boroujerdi. Prosecutor Ghadyani had threatened Boroujerdi several times that his situation [in prison] will worsen.

* Seyyed Hossein Kazemeyni Boroujerdi is an Iranian Shia Muslim cleric who advocates the separation of religion and government and has been imprisoned several times by the Iranian government.

ضرب و شتم و اهانت به آيت الله بروجردی در زندان

گزارش دریافتی :صبح امروز، آقاي بروجردي در بند ویژه روحانیت مورد ضرب و شتم و اهانت مامورین زندان قرار گرفت و تهدید به انتقال به بند انفرادی گردید. مسئولين زندان تا اين ساعت، در این باره هيچ گونه توضيحي نداده اند ولي آنگونه كه از شواهد امر پيداست، این اقدام ددمنشانه، يك تراژدي از پيش طرح ريزي شده می باشد كه درپي ناكامي مسئولين دادسرای ويژه روحانيت در توطئه هاي اسفند ماه گذشته، انجام گرفته است. دادستان قدياني طي اسفند ماه گذشته بارها آقاي بروجردي را تهدید به تشدید آزارها نموده بود.
