Dec. 17 – A youth arrested on Dec. 7 during the heroic uprising of students and other people has reported about the savage tortures imposed on him by the henchmen of SSF and has posted photos of his tortured body for us.
He has been dragged to clandestine torture chambers along with 8 others and has been under savage beating and torture for three consecutive hours.
In his letter he wrote: “they dragged us into a van and took us to somewhere we didn’t know. They took away everything that we had, we only had our shirts on; they threw us in a room 2*3 meters.
Torture tools such as batons, cable and other tools could be seen there.
To torture us one of the henchmen used a cable with 40 cm long. The handle was about 10 to 15 cm and the rest of the cable was only 2 mm tick. He heated this cable to get hot and then lashed us with it to be more painful. It hurt more than baton strikes.
The henchmen were persistent to torture us with that cable. Of course slapping and swearing at us was inseparable portion of the torture.
They tortured us with all the tools in the room for 2 to 3 hours and then transferred us to another room.
The next day they kicked us out of the car in one of the streets of Tehran”.
