Despite the doctors’ insistence to hospitalize Barzan, the agents stopped medical treatment after an hour and transferred him to Sanandaj intelligence, so he lost his entire spleen. Barzan was tortured during the interrogation sessions and because he was very young the interrogators forced him to watch the torture of the others in the intelligence service and finally he gave a video recorded confession in terms of his relation with Islamic extremist -Salafi- groups.”, the source added.
