Persian2English – Human rights groups have reported that, on early Wednesday morning, four political prisoners in ward 4 hall 12 of Rajai Shahr ‘Gohardasht’ prison were transferred to branch 6 of the Karaj Revolutionary Court for additional investigation on new case files issued to them by Ministry of Intelligence interrogators. The political prisoners are, Farzad Madadzadeh, Saleh Kohandel, Mohammad Ali Mansouri, and Behrouz Javid Tehrani

The four political prisoners were transferred to the court with their hands and feet bound. An official by the name of Nasseri conducted the investigation on the four imprisoned men. Farzad, Saleh, Mohammad, and Behrouz rejected the charges set forth by the Ministry of Intelligence.

On June 28th, the four political prisoners were suddenly transferred from ward 4 of Rajai Shahr prison to solitary confinement in Evin prison, but they were eventually transferred back to the general ward of Rajai Shahr prison. The Iranian officials have remained silent on the reason for the transfer.
