Political prisoners in Wards 8 and 7 were the most to suffer injuries and death because of the shootings. On October 16, 2022, about 40 political prisoners were transferred from Evin to Gohardasht Prison.
Political prisoner Loghman Aminpour was among those transferred to Gohardasht. However, on October 19, 2022, he was transferred back to Evin in Ward 241.
Loghman Aminpour was born in 1991 in Tehran and holds a bachelor’s degree in real estate.
The first time he was arrested in March 2018 and sentenced to 6 years in prison for “propaganda against the state” and for “having ties with the PMOI/MEK.” He was released from jail in March 2020 after the outbreak of the Coronavirus.
He was arrested on June 2, 2020, for a second time. He was detained in solitary confinement during his interrogation. The Intelligence Ministry threatened his family and put pressure on him to accept the charges leveled against him.
In October 2020, Mr. Aminpour was infected with the virus due to overcrowding of the prison, and lack of heating in the ward. He is presently suffering from the symptoms of this disease, such as lung problems and short breath. He is deprived of access to minimum health care.
