HRANA – Ali Parviz, a Khajeh Nasir University of Technology student, who has been detained in Evin prison since November 3, 2009, was transferred to solitary confinement.
According to Kalameh, a few nights ago, Parviz and several other political prisoners in Evin’s Ward 350 were transferred to the IRGC controlled Ward 209 at 1:00 a.m. for further interrogations. Ward 209 officials forced Parviz and other activists to wear blindfolds.
Parviz refused to wear a blindfold and reminded everyone of the fact that at the time of their arrest and initial charging, Intelligence Ministry interrogators had forced him and several other student activists to sign confession documents while blindfolded, which later turned out to contain completely unrelated charges.
When Intelligence Ministry agents tried to blindfold Parviz, he tore his blindfold and asked the other student activists to not allow the officers to interrogate them blindfolded again.
In retaliation, Intelligent Ministry interrogators ordered Parviz’s transfer to solitary confinement.
Ali Parviz is one of the 12 Khajeh Nasir University of Technology students who have been in Evin prison since November 3, 2009. Parviz was sentenced to three years in prison in his initial trial, which sentence was reduced to one year in prison and payment of a fine on appeal. He was charged with “acting against national security,” “participating in an assembly,” and “insulting the president.”
