Iran: Elderly political prisoner Ali Moezzi forcibly dressed for court
Political Prisoner Ali Moezzi was summoned to appear in a court on January 10, 2018. He refused to wear inmate uniform as well as handcuffs and shackles. But prison guards forcibly dressed the 64-year-old political prisoner in jail uniform and took him to court.
Ali Moezzi is a supporter of the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI). He was sentenced to five years in prison in 2011 for attending the funeral of an Iranian Resistance supporter.
He was due to be released two years ago but the Regime extended his sentence without providing any reason.
Ali Moezzi, who suffers from cancer, has been routinely tortured by Regime agents and has been sentenced to solitary confinement for much of his imprisonment.
He also served two years in prison for visiting his daughters (members of the PMOI/MEK) who were in exile in Iraq. Ali Moezzi also endured time behind bars as a political prisoner back in the 1980s.
Apparently recent incident is a part of new conspiracies designed by Iranian authorities against the political prisoner.
