HRANA News Agency – The following list is the names of prisoners in different halls in ward number 7 of Evin prison who are detained and imprisoned with charges like “being in contact with conflicting governments” and “espionage”. Themajority of them has rejected the accusations and consider them to have political motives.

According to the report of Human Rights Activists News Agency in Iran (HRANA), the majority of security-political prisoners are being held in ward number 7 of Evin prison. Some are being held in wards 4 and 8 as well.

HRANA is trying to periodically update and release these types of lists.

Previously, HRANA had released the names of prisoners with mainly espionage charges in ward number 7 of Evin prison.

The majority of those prisoner are going to be prosecuted and put on trial under article 501 (espionage) and article 508 (being in contact with conflicting governments) of Islamic Penal Act. Due to lack of transparency of judiciary in similar cases and historic use of security allegations against political opposition groups by the judiciary, and also deprivation of these citizens from a fair trial, this list is being updated solely based on official charges made by the judiciary and HRANA cannot confirm these accusations.
