Mostafa Rahmani: A Witness to Non-Political Prison Wards in Iran

Mostafa Rahmani, an Iranian human rights activist who spent two months in Ghezelhesar prison in Karaj among ordinary prisoners in 2010 discusses his experiences. Two years prior, Rahmani also spent two weeks in Taybad prison, where he claims to have witnessed mass executions of prisoners. Prisoners of conscience in Iran are often detained separately from the rest of the prison population. As a result reports on the conditions of the prison wards that hold prisoners convicted on normal criminal charges have been scarce.
