Iran: Young prisoner commits suicide because of torture and sexual abuse
On Wednesday November 29, a young prisoner in Rajaie Shahr Prison of Karaj committed suicide and passed away. He was identified as 25-year-old Mohammad Menbari. After protesting prison conditions, he was summoned by the head of Rajaie Shahr Prison, Ziaee, and was brutally beaten by prison guards to the extent that other prisoners said that his hand and feet broke.
Upon Ziaee’s orders, he was then sexually abused in front of other prisoners and subsequently hanged (from the ceiling or wall). The young prisoner committed suicide as a result of the psychological pressures put on him due to this inhumane treatment and unfortunately passed away.
