Political prisoner sentenced to five years of prison for “cooperating with dissident groups”
The 1st Branch of the Zahedan Revolutionary Court, presided over by Bameri, sentenced Abdullah Qanbarzehi, to five years of prison for “cooperating with dissident groups”. The 25-year-old political prisoner was arrested by the Intelligence Agency in Zahedan and was subjected to interrogation along with torture for one month in solitary confinement in the Zahedan Information Office. The Miracle Bed is a common method of torture for obtaining confessions from prisoners, especially in the Zahedan Intelligence Detention Center. In this type of torture, the prisoner is tied to the bed, and is flogged until he stops resisting and makes confessions that can be used against him.
