We observe that in an Islamic country some young people are beaten to death just for chanting slogans in (the post- election) protests. Some of the detainees said they were forced to take off their clothes. Then they were made to go on their hands and knees and were ridden (by prison guards). Or the prison authorities put them on top of each other while they were naked. [Source]

That the Iranian government then paraded a series of Evin inmates on state television “testifying” to the absence of maltreatment is an absolute farce.
