Preliminary News Update VI

Jan. 29, 2008
1- On 25 Jan. Mortezaa Baagheri, Peymaan Baraabar, Ahmad Moraadi, Arshiaa Haashemi, Elnaaz Aazari (female), Yaaser Mandi, and Zohre Saalaari (female), students of Maazabdaraan University, were kidnapped and taken to an unknown place.

2- There’s no trace of the whereabouts of Sarah Khademi.

3- horrific news of torture are leaking out, as the students are under intense torture to “confess” their “crimes” on TV.

3- Behruz Karimizade’s family has reported on a deep wound on his right arm, plus quite a few other injuries all over his body.

4- Peymaan Piraan’s shoulder has been broken.

4- Amin Ghazaa’i, Sa’id Habibi, Bijan Sabbaagh, and Soroosh Dashtestaani have been reported to be under intense, almost around the clock, interrogation and torture. Sa’id Habibi is still held in solitary confinement. So far he has been allowed only one phone call home.

5- Several students have been in such bad shapes that had to be taken to hospital.

6- Families have been threatened that should they try to spread the news of the conditions inside the prison, they will face the same fate.

7- Bails continue to be set at extortionate levels. Amir Elyaasi was released on a bail of $50,000. The preliminary court set the bail for Sa’id Aghaamali 10 days ago at $100,000. His family has been unable to raise the money and, as a result, he is still in detention. The record bail so far has been that of Behruz Safshekan, who was released on a bail of $150,000. Even Meysam Rashidi who was acquitted of all charges after 45 days in detention was released on bail; lest he commits crimes in the future!
