A human rights organization said the families of the Sunni-Kurdish prisoners whom Iran executed earlier this month revealed that Iranian intelligence members had tortured their sons prior to executing them by hanging.
The Defenders of Human Rights Center in Kurdistan quoted the families of the executed prisoners as saying that they’ve seen torture marks on their son’s bodies in addition to broken legs and arms.
On August 2, members of the intelligence and masked members affiliated with the Iranian special security units raided the political prisoners’ section in the Rajai Shahr Prison in Karaj, west of Tehran, and led 36 Sunni Kurdish activists, who were sentenced to death at the time, to an unknown location. The next day, news of executing 25 of them was released
The Defenders of Human Rights Center quoted an activist in Sanandaj, capital of the Kurdistan province, as saying that Iranian intelligence members threatened to arrest the family members of the executed men if they speak to the media about the torture marks on their children’s bodies.
The activist added that security forces also warned them of holding funerals for those hanged.
